Welcome back to #SGV Connect. This week, I talk to Councilmember Muir Davis of La Verne about bicycle projects moving from the drawing board to contract. In a few short months, bike projects that have been on the books since I talked to La Verne advocate Doug Strange for #SGVConnect10 are close to becoming reality.
But first, Kris interviews Katie Lemmon, Senior Transportation Manager at Metro and Jacob Libe, Senior Director of First/Last Mile Planning at Metro. The team is working hard to have projects on the ground to allow people to access the future Gold Line Foothill Stations as they open in future years.
During my interview with Councilmember Davis, he mentions that people interested in getting involved with bike planning visit the La Verne Bicycle Coalition homepage for meeting updates and advocacy opportunities. At the time of broadcasting this podcast, that page is full of information about the first/last mile planning for a future La Verne Station.
As a special bonus to listeners, if you make it all the way to the end of the second interview you can hear me repeat the same story about running into Jose Huizar the days before the Gold Line Eastside Extension opened that I tell in the start of the podcast.
SGV Connect is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
