Bike Month is here, and it's time to think about what it will be like to bike on MyFigueroa, Downtown LA's first protected bike lane.
That's right! Construction on the long awaited MyFig project will be starting soon in 2016, bringing safety improvements for bicycle and transit users and a better Figueroa for us all. (more info here)
Stay tuned for updates on MyFig construction, and in the meantime, Let's Fig Out different ways to get around Figueroa outside of our cars.
FIg Out a Bike Route: This Thursday May 19 is Bike to Work Day. If you're biking near Fig, stop at LACBC's South LA Pit Stop at MLK Blvd and Vermont (the southeastern edge of the MyFigueroa project).
Fig Out Expo: This Friday, May 20 is Metro's Expo Line Phase 2 grand opening. For the first time in 60 years, Angelenos will be able to ride a train from Downtown LA to the beach in Santa Monica! Hop on the Metro Expo Line Downtown or near USC, where it runs just one block east of the MyFigueroa project. See how MyFigueroa will connect with Metro to give Angelenos more options for getting around.
