There’s another great opportunity for the South Bay’s bike advocates to voice their opinions the growth and support of mixed mode transport.  Please follow the link below to see the announcement about the upcoming Metro Green Line extension community meetings:

South Bay Metro Green Line Extension Meeting Flyer

How the Metro’s extension fits into bike planning: Creating a more bike-friendly South Bay means incorporating all modes of transportation.  If you’ve visited Portland, New York or any number of European cities you know that an abundance of public transportation are more easily navigated by bike.  Multiple forms of connectivity allow pedestrians and cyclists to navigate large regions more conveniently, help decrease automobile dependence and ultimately make adding bike infrastructure easier.  Not to mention, a rail line provides a perfect location for an adjacent bike lane.

We hope you’ll join us at one of the meetings below.
