Metro Announces $200 Million for Multimodal Transportation Projects

 Last week, Metro released their funding recommendations for their biennial Call for Projects, one of the main sources of funding for local transportation projects in Los Angeles County. Bicycle projects secured $30 million, including some very exciting new bike paths and protected bike lanes, including:
  • Complete streets enhancements for Colorado Blvd in Eagle Rock
  • Bike-friendly business districts throughout Los Angeles
  • New access points and amenities along the San Gabriel River and Rio Hondo bike paths
  • Bike share in Pasadena, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills (Congrats WeHo Bicycle Coalition!)
  • Protected bike lanes in downtown Pasadena and along Chandler Blvd in the San Fernando Valley
  • Bike-friendly streets for Mid-City in Los Angeles (Congrats Mid-City West NC!)
  • Connecting the new Bixby Memorial Bike Path in the Port of Long Beach to the LA River bike path
  • 17 miles of new bike lanes from the Downey Bicycle Master Plan (Congrats Downey Bicycle Coalition!)
  • 9 miles of new bikeways from the Pomona Active Transportation Plan (Congrats Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition!)
  • A new bike path along Railroad Ave in Newhall (Congrats Santa Clarita Valley Bicycle Coalition!)
Unfortunately, this funding continues to fall far short of the demand with a large number of high-scoring bike projects going unfunded. Less than 1% of the county's transportation funding goes to walking and biking combined. LACBC continues to work with our partners to advocate for more funding for biking and walking projects at the local, regional and state level.
