Los Angeles County Bicycle Master Plan

Los Angeles County Public Works (PW) is updating the Los Angeles County Bicycle Master Plan (BMP). The current BMP was last updated in 2012 and established a vision for the future of biking in the County. The BMP will serve as a guide for the development of safe and accessible bikeways and paths within unincorporated Los Angeles County and along County flood control district channels. The BMP will propose new bikeways, revisit the feasibility of unconstructed bikeways from the 2012 plan, incorporate new policies to share bikeway facilities with micro-mobility devices, identify first/last mile bikeway improvements to further connect to transit stations and bus stops, and prepare for the programmatic environmental impact report.

The BMP will engage with community members, community-based organizations (CBOs), and advisory committees to develop an inclusive and representative BMP. The BMP will be finalized in early 2025.

Vision: Make bicycling safe, convenient, and accessible for all ages and abilities in Los Angeles County

Goals:

  • Equity. Invest in underserved, pollution-burdened communities that are most dependent on active transportation.
  • Safety. Prioritize bicycle projects that improve the safety of our streets.
  • Mode Shift. Increase the number of biking and multimodal trips.
  • Transparency. Be responsive, transparent, and accountable to our communities and regional partners.
