Yesterday marked the return of a popular open streets celebration through the cities of Alhambra, San Gabriel, and South Pasadena. Similar Active Streets Mission-to-Mission events took place in 2019 and 2022, when the event was known as 626 Golden Streets (it was rebranded this year). Tens of thousands of participants biked, walked, skated and scootered.

Active Streets is produced by ActiveSGV, in partnership with Metro, the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments, along with the participating cities.

The route featured historic areas, tree-lined residential streets, lots of crowded restaurants, and popular hubs featuring music, dance, booths and much more. Many participants arrived by Metro A Line.

Active Streets draws participants of all ages - walking, skating, scootering, and bicycling

City Repaved Coronado Street Without Measure HLA-Required Bikeway

Months after voters overwhelmingly demanded safer streets, the city appears to be installing fewer safety upgrades. Last week, the city repaved what appears to be the first test case for the new law: Coronado Street.
