Alexis Lantz, Planning and Policy Director of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition

Join us in conversation with Commissioner Roschen and Alexis Lantz discussing the  Los Angeles City Bicycle Masterplan, approved in March by the City Council. The Bicycle Master Plan calls for an eventual network of 1,680 miles of interconnected bikeways, including more than 200 miles of new bicycle routes every five years. It also calls for a safety campaign to educate drivers about sharing the streets. Learn how the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Los Angeles City Planning Commission, and Department of Transportation collaborated to make this vision come true.
