Bike to Work Day (#BTWD2019)
Bike to Work Day 2019 in Los Angeles is this Thursday, May 16th! Grab a bike (or scooter) and commute to work in a way that is friendly to the environment and to your health.
4th Street Pit Stop
In celebration of Bike to Work Day, from 7 to 10am Thursday, LADOT will host a BTWD “pit stop” at the corner of 4th Street and New Hampshire Avenue in Koreatown, stocked with free coffee and donuts (while supplies last) to help power you along on your route to work. While you recharge at our pit stop, learn about improvements coming to 4th Street and share your ideas about how to make this corridor more bike- and ped-friendly. During the event you can also test out our pop-up mini-roundabout, one of the ways LADOT is planning to enhance 4th Street by slowing vehicles down at the intersection while facilitating through traffic on bike. We can’t wait to see everyone roll up on two wheels Thursday morning!
Free Transit Rides for People on Bikes on Thursday
LADOT Transit will allow all riders with a bicycle or bike helmet to ride DASH and Commuter Express buses for free to celebrate Bike to Work Day 2019 (details here). Similarly, Metro bus and rail, as well as many other transit agencies, will also offer free transit rides to bicyclists (details here).
See you out there!
We are looking forward to Bike to Work Day 2019! It will be a great day for new bike commuters, old pros, and everyone in between. Stop by our pit stop at 4th/New Hampshire, LACBC’s pit stop along the new two-way Spring Street bike lane in DTLA, or any of the others throughout the city and county and then…get to work!
