City Planning to Use Old Parking Meters for Bike Parking

1_30_09_bike_lock.jpg

Back at the start of the month, I asked readers for more story ideas and reader KG noticed that bike parking in the city was growing more scarce as parking meters were being removed for the new computerized parking plan.  So, we asked the LADOT if they what they were planning to do to make sure cyclists still had a safe, convenient safe to park.

It turns out the LADOT was a step ahead of us.  LADOT representative Michelle Mowery tells us that the leadreship in the LADOT is already behind a plan to convert fomer parking meters to bike parking as pictured above.  How long until we start to see this conversion of old meters could be as soon as the end of February.  If someone sees them on the street before I do, drop me a line and a picture and there's a Streetfilms t-shirt in it for you.
