When you think of the City of Angels, bicycle connectivity isn't typically one of the first things to pop to mind. However, according to this article, LA is making a big bicycle play:
For the past few years L.A. has been trying to shed its car-centric image and move its population towards public transportation and more eco-friendly means of travel.
Now, the Los Angeles City Council approved a new plan that will give the city a network of 1,680 miles of interconnected bikeways. This would include more than 200 miles of new bicycle routes every five years.
This is a huge move considering the city currently has fewer than 400 miles of bikeways that aren’t really connected to each other.
About $1.75 million each year for bike infrastructure could come from Measure R, a transportation sales tax approved by county voters in 2008. Additional funding will come from state and city transit agency sources, City Councilman Bill Rosendahl said.
