New Bike Parking in Hollywood!

In an effort to help Angelenos choose alternative modes of transportation, yesterday we installed more than 50 new bicycle racks on Hollywood Boulevard between La Brea and Vine. The city’s Department of Transportation worked with my office to developed a pilot program that transforms parking meters made obsolete by the city’s new Park-and-Pay system into new bicycle racks. To expand bicycle parking capacity, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation is installing “meter hitches” that convert the poles of former parking meters into bike racks.

This new program will provide more bicycle parking to make it easier for residents and visitors who want to use bikes to get around our neighborhood.

Don’t forget to ride safely!
