The UCLA campus now has what I am pretty sure is L.A. County’s first counter-flow bike lanes.* The one-block bike lane is on Dixon Court, formerly just a one-way street.

It was previously one-way only, and campus police sometimes gave students tickets for bicycling against traffic.

Drivers cannot go northbound on Dixon Court, but cyclists now can
