StreetHeat Holiday Shopping Guide

10:08 AM PST on December 17, 2007

With just seven shopping days left until Christmas, your friendly neighborhood transportation blogger has some holiday ideas for all of you to pass on to all of yours. Unfortunately, I'm way to late for the Eco Gift Expo.

For that special cyclist in your life:

Get them a copy of Eat!Sleep?Bikes! available on line at Sascha's myspace page.

Orange 20, LA's Hottest Bike Shop, has a hot new bike in stock. If you don't have $600 just lying around, you can always do a gift certificate....

Have I mentioned that the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition is having a holiday sale on memberships?
If they already have a membership, you could always rent them a bike locker by their nearest transit stop...

For that Special Transit Rider:

Speaking of memberships, The Transit Coalition and the Southern California Transit Advocates are always looking for new members.

Metro's online store has a lot of different knick-knacks for sale. I like the token lapel pins. AMTRAK also has an online store.

Since we won't be seeing high-speed rail coming to SOCAL anytime soon, maybe a gift certificate to AMTRAK isn't such a bad idea...or heck...why not a whole AMTRAK vacation?

If you have a transit rider who uses Metro and DASH services, you might want to get them a one month EZ PASS, so they can remember what it was like when they didn't have to pay to transfer between services.

Regardless of your gift choice, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season...
