A Bicycle Census of Sorts Coming to L.A. in September

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The LA County Bicycle Coalition announced today in an e-mail blast that they will be "conducting the first ever bicycle count for Los Angeles" in September. "Bicycle counts are used to track the number of cyclists at key intersections. This is used to understand year-to-year changes in cycling as policy and infrastructure changes. Bicycle counts are basic city planning tools that help change policy to encourage cycling. Most major US and European cities have them. This will be LA's first, and we plan to do it right while having a good time. As we are counting bicycles, we will also be counting pedestrians." If you have any suggestions for which intersections they should monitor, let them know via this survey.
