Reminder, We’ll Be Broadcasting This Afternoon’s Speech by Gabe Klein at Streetsblog TV

Later this afternoon we’ll be Live Streaming the presentation by former Chicago and Washington D.C. DOT boss Gabe Klein, live at 1 pm from City Hall. You can watch the presentation here.

Sometimes Live Streams can be a bit choppy, and City Hall isn’t exactly known for high quality wi-fi, so we’ll be recoding the videos and uploading them to our YouTube page over the weekend. We’ll post notices as the videos are uploaded.

The speech is sponsored by the Urban Land Institute Los Angeles Chapter and the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti. If you’re not familiar with Klein, you can catch up a little by reading Streetsblog’s event preview post from Monday.

I’m the person behind the camera. Tweet comments, suggestions, angry notes to @damientypes.We fixed the glitch from last time. We should be clear sailing tomorrow.

Here’s our half our interview. We didn’t get to everyone’s questions, but Juan was nice enough to go back and answer them in an earlier comments section.

Reminder: I’ll Be Interviewing Juan Matute Live at 3 at Socal StreetsTube About “Ride Share” and Southern California

Just a reminder, at 3:00 today I’ll be interviewing Juan Matute, UCLA Lewis Center Associate Director about the role that the city plays regulating Transportation Network Companies and how these companies help or hurt mobility overall. The first question will be, why don’t you just call companies such as Uber and Lyft ride share like everyone else?

We’ll broadcast live at SoCal Streetstube. If you have a question for Juan, leave it in the comments section. As always, we’ll publish the broadcast as soon as it is completed.

Best Practices Video: Bike Center in Santa Monica

When Bike Center opened its doors in Santa Monica in 2011, Metro billed it as the largest bike parking facility in the United States. In two separate facilities, the Center houses 5300 square feet to 360 dedicated spaces and has over 200 members who can access those spaces at anytime.

Yet, it’s not just the size of the parking that makes Bike Center such a success story. The Ceneter has become a hub for bike activity, hosting classes, rides and other events. Its location, near the ocean and downtown Santa Monica, allows it to serve tourists, day visitors, and locals. But what might be of greatest interest to other city’s looking to invest in bike facilities beyond lanes, it makes money.

The partnership between Bike and Park and the City of Santa Monica is turning into a profitable one. While the two have a revenue sharing agreement, the city wasn’t counting on any money from the bike parking company except rent. In 2012, Bike Center wrote a check of over $75,000 in revenue sharing with the city.

Bike Center’s model isn’t just to be a large bike parking center, but also to have a retail and bike rental component. I’ve personally spotted Bike Center bikes as far south as Marina Del Rey and as far east as Downtown Los Angeles (during CicLAvia, but still….)

This makes Bike Center the perfect subject for the first of our best practices videos, highlighting some of the best ideas and programs in Southern California.

Matt Tinoco, who did the yeoman’s work of producing all summer is going it alone to interview Carolyn Ramsay, Chief of Staff to Council Member Tom LaBonge about open space issues facing the city…while I try and get enough bandwidth to join them. However, you can watch live at our YouTube page, SoCal StreetsTube.

Programming Change: Join Us for Google Hangout With Carolyn Ramsay Discussing Parks and Open Space Today at Noon

Join us at noon by clicking here. If you’re early, check out some of our older hangouts and videos.

That would be Carolyn Ramsay, right next to the red bow.

Due to a last minute schedule change, Council Member Tom LaBonge will not be joining us at noon today for the last installment of our Summer Series where we broadcast interviews on Google Hangout/YouTube. That’s the bad news.

The good news is, replacing him in our programming slot is Carolyn Ramsay, LaBonge’s Chief of Staff and former director of the Trust for Public Land in Los Angeles County.

While it’s sad we’re not going to get to “hang out” with the Councilman, who is always a good time, Ramsey is one of the most knowledgeable people on open space issues facing Los Angeles.

As always, if you have any questions for LaBonge you can leave them in the comments section or tweet with hashtag #sblasummer.

The hangout will be broadcast at our YouTube page, SoCal StreetsTube. After the interview has concluded, we will archive the broadcast for public viewing.
