We noticed that the “MID-CITY” metal signs were being (re)installed this past week. (At no cost to us! A little background – the original signs were defective, so MINC and CD-10 worked with the sign company to get new ones installed.) Specifically, they have started on the North side of Washington Blvd., near Wellington Rd. Hopefully, the complete install from Fairfax to Crenshaw will finish soon. Check them out when you go to Farmer’s Market this Sunday.
To celebrate Bike To Work Day, the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation will offer FREE rides to bicyclists who use DASH and Commuter Express bus services on Thursday, May 20.
Any rider who either brings a bicycle or wears a bicycle helmet will be given a free ride on Commuter Express buses. For those Commuter Express riders who bring a bicycle, Commuter Express buses are outfitted with bike racks on the front of the bus. Each rack accommodates two bikes, so riders bringing their bikes will be accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis. For DASH riders, any rider who boards a DASH bus wearing a bicycle helmet will get a free ride; however, DASH buses can only accommodate folding bikes.
