Call To Action by Northeast LA Bike Ambassador, Michael McDonald: 

Attend Metro’s Noho-Pasadena BRT hearings! Metro’s proposed project eliminates existing buffered bike lanes on Colorado Blvd that advocates spent 3 years to win and have widespread community support. Ask Metro to: 1) Retain or upgrade existing bike lanes; 2) Adhere to LA’s Mobility Plan; 3) Enable achievement of LA’s Vision Zero goals.
