Walk, bike or skate down six miles of Iconic Wilshire Boulevard this Sunday with CicLAvia! There are 5 Metro Purple Line stations along this summer’s route – 7th/Metro, Westlake/MacArthur Park, Wilshire/Vermont, Wilshire/Normandie and Wilshire Western – so whether you’re heading out or heading home, Metro can help you get there.
Also, if you’re going to CicLAvia, you’ll get the chance to view 2 of the locations where new stations will be built for the Purple Line Extenison – La Brea and Fairfax. Metro will have a mock-rail car at the Fairfax hub with info on the project and more, drop by to say hi!
Iconic Wilshire Boulevard will be car-free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Purple Line connects at 7th/Metro with the Red, Blue and Expo Line. Bicyclists who want to get to CicLAvia by Metro should review Metro’s bike rules. For those of you riding bikes from Union Station to Wilshire, here’s a downtown Los Angeles bike map. The gist of it: there are north-south bike lanes on Spring Street and then you can pick your way west toward Wilshire on 5th (one way going west), 7th (traffic in both directions) or 8th (one way west). Be safe!
Bus lines detouring for the event include: 20, 60, 206, 210, 460, 487, 720 and Metro Silver Line. Detours will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or when barricades are present. For more details, please check the Service Advisories page.
The Iconic Wilshire Boulevard route will connect One Wilshire in downtown Los Angeles to Fairfax Avenue along Miracle Mile. These two anchor hubs will feature pedestrian zones with performers, activities, food trucks and more. Additional hubs along the route include MacArthur Park, Koreatown and Mid-Wilshire. Have your TAP card handy and save 15% on CicLAvia T-shirts at the hubs along the route.
