Monrovia Plans to Promote Bicycle Riding

As part of the GoMonrovia transportation program, the city is planning to promote bicycle riding in Monrovia with "a 'Ride-to-Own' bicycle pilot program, which includes dedicated bike programs for residents, commuters, restaurants for delivery services, bike shops (rentals/repairs), as well as a digital platform and a budget for infrastructure updates and marketing."

The program is designed to "alleviate safety and financial barriers to owning and riding bikes in Monrovia."

Also, the city is working to get the Monrovia Transit vehicles (for handicapped individuals) onto the Lyft app so people can order a ride just as Lyft riders do.

The matter will be reported on at the next City Council meeting: https://is.gd/SUPuXX

  1. We need traffic control measures on mountain and foothill and request a bike lane on foothill closing one lane to far traffic

  2. What we don't need are single traffic lanes on foothill. It would impact the many for the occasional use by the few.

    1. I agree with you. Removing a lane from Foothill would create more problems than it solves.

    3. Most of the Foothill traffic is through traffic that act like it's a freeway. It would be great to reduce it to one lane and get these people down to Huntington for their pass through our town.

  3. The city needs to renovate Recreation park to be more like Lacy park with a nice bike trail. It would be an amazing resource for residents and another attraction to draw visitors which would be good for local businesses.
