River Path Access Remains Fenced Off
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 soon further encourage 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.
BikeSGV urges Metro and local decision-makers to address this issue, and you can too by signing our online petition. Let local decision-makers know you support safe, direct access for bicyclists to the new El Monte Transit Center, act now by clicking below!
