Whose Job Is It To Fight For Bike Paths?

New, 14 comments

During yesterday's interactive Metro chat on mta.net, an answer from the transit agency's Pam O'Connor severely irked the bloggers at la.metblogs. Following a question about bike paths, O'Connor instructed cyclists to "be sure to tell your city council member that bike paths and bike networks are important!" Metblogs took umbrage, saying it's Metro's job to work with ACTING MAYOR Eric Garcetti and friends, not the commuters. The most contentious bike path right now is the one planned from Downtown to Canoga Park that's being resisted by NBC Universal. The councilman repping Universal is none other than our ACTING MAYOR.
