Bicycle Corral Update

York Blvd Bike Corral

A city crew installs L.A.’s first bike corral back in February 2011, in rainy conditions. This year, the pilot program expands to 10 additional locations.

With the success of the York Blvd. and Sunset Triangle bicycle corrals, LADOT is currently working to bring these transformative pieces of infrastructure to other communities around Los Angeles. For our new installations, we  will be using a reconfigured design that is safer, easier to install, and more cost-effective.

For those who need a quick refresher on what bicycle corrals are, here is a brief document explaining how they work and their many benefits:

If you are interested in locating a bike corral in front of your business, please fill out this form to let us know. If you have a business you think would benefit from this bicycle amenity, be sure to bring this form to their attention.

To date, we have received over 25 requests to site bike corrals, and of those, we are working on installing ten corrals this year to test our new design.
