After our Thursday post on the new Bikestation Long Beach, someone commented that the Washington D.C. Bikestation is a beauty so we rounded up a couple of images. As you can see, he was correct.
Several of you also asked when the next Bikestation would open in our area. Among your suggestions were Century City, Westwood, Compton, Hollywood/Vine and downtown L.A.
Bikestation Long Beach CEO Andrea White-Kjoss tells us that several are in the works — although nothing is firm enough to announce. But a likely spot for the next will be somewhere in downtown L.A. Note to David Murphy who suggested it: She didn’t say Union Station is up next but she did say it was a top contender and a great idea because of its proximity to transit.
To encourage building of a Bikestation near you, White-Kjoss said it’s best to send ideas to local entities with funding capabilities. For example, the Long Beach Bikestation is supported in part by the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency. And if you have questions or comments, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or head for their website.
And yes, IT Guy in Irvine, Bikestation Long Beach will gladly park electric bikes. But leave those Harleys at home.
