Volunteer Opportunity: Help LACBC Measure Sharrow Impact

Sharrows Counts and Surveys
Volunteers Urgently Needed!

Thank you for helping us with the sharrows counts this past spring – your participation made the survey possible!

We’re now at the last task of the sharrows study we’ve been working on with the city: we will be conducting counts and surveys of bicyclists on the six streets where sharrows were painted over the summer, as a “before” and “after” comparison.

We’ll also be handing out our newly printed sharrows flier, which you can download here.
