    Our customers?

    Is The Source’s post just a Metro press release?

    Funny.

    Also, in the entire response, there was almost nothing that actually addressed the BRU’s concerns. I can only assume that was intentional. It’s a typical non-response response.

    The valley might not get rail,
    We might not get museums.

    But we will get a hodge podge of un connected bike lanes Gosh Darnit, and I will be happy about it.

    Like really happy.

    The BRU’s nonsense doesn’t warrant a response.

  • Joe,

    A number of bike lanes currently “in design” will close a lot of gaps that currently exist in the valley’s bicycle network.

    Also, the draft 2010 LA Bike Plan’s 5 year expenditure plan calls for even more gap closure between existing facilities in the valley.

  • @joe (another joe!) – I am going to actually agree with the LADOT bike blog – if you look at the 5-year implementation plan, there are quite a few gap closures in the Valley. See the streetblog article I wrote here: http://la.streetsblog.org/2010/08/10/looking-into-los-angeles-draft-bike-plan-implementation-strategy/

    With so few facilities on L.A. streets, I think we need to be careful about being too critical of “unconnected” facilities. If we don’t go forward with some unconnected facilities, then we may never get anything to connect to… be careful with the “it doesn’t go far enough” argument – because it often ends up justifying inaction and the status quo.
