We want the streets of Los Angeles to be safe for all people, whether they are walking, bicycling, taking transit, or driving.

Westwood Village is a special place in Los Angeles. UCLA and the surrounding community come to the Village for entertainment, shopping, dining and just to hang out. Westwood Blvd is also one of the main commuter routes to the university and medical center, serving bus riders, drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. UCLA is a leader in promoting alternative commutes: over half of students, faculty and staff do not drive to campus. As a result, Westwood Blvd is both a route for commuters and a place for residents and visitors and must serve both purposes.

Westwood Blvd is one of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Great Streets, which focuses city services to make business corridors clean, safe and accessible for everyone. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has proposed adding bike lanes on Westwood Blvd to connect existing bike lanes south of Wilshire to the bike lanes on campus. This five-block gap creates an unsafe situation for hundreds of people who ride on Westwood every day. Adding bike lanes will not require reducing the number of lanes for cars and buses or parking. Bike lanes will make Westwood Blvd a safer street for biking, walking and driving.

Sign the petition to support making Westwood Blvd a Great Street with bike lanes!

    I am moving to the area soon and hope to be a bike commuter. I fully support improving access for bikes and pedestrians.

    I have lived in the area for the past 10 years, and nervously use Westwood Blvd as a north/south route for bike travel. It is time for Westwood Blvd to be a safe place for ALL types of transportation. Please add bike lanes and help us be more safe on the roads!

    This is one of the most logical corridors for bike lanes in the LA area.

    UCLA faculty, staff, and students deserve a safe way to bike to campus.

    On occasion I find this street to be a good path to my destination, but I’m always nervous when I utilize it. Killing an Angelino is not on my bucket list. PLEASE add those wonderful bike lanes.

    Please do not remove bike lane, add more. Riding in Westwood is already a little hairy.

    I’m a UCLA student and this change would be extremely consequential for my commute.
