Allow Bike Access to El Monte Transit Center
Metro recently opened a gleaming, state-of-the-art transportation center in the City of El Monte. Yet access to the bus station from the adjacent Rio Hondo River bike path is fenced off.
Sign today, and let those with the power to address this issue know that you support safe, direct access for bicyclists to the new El Monte Transit Center!
Metro recently opened a gleaming, state-of-the-art transportation center and bus station in the City of El Monte. As a whole, the new station is a wonderful leap forward for the region's growing public transportation network. Not only is it capable of serving 30,000 plus passengers a day and allowing buses direct access to the 10 freeway busway, it has incorporated elements such as a Metro Bicycle Hub that will facilitate active transportation.
The station is also located along a local bicycle highway, the Rio Hondo River bike path, which should make it easily accessible to cyclists from around the region. Yet access to the station from the adjacent bike path is currently fenced off.
As a local constituent who supports the development of a robust, multi-modal transportation system, I urge you to please address this issue and facilitate safe, direct access for bicyclists to the new El Monte Transit Center.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
