Hope everyone had a good time at Beach Streets on Saturday in Long Beach. A lot of people came out to bike, walk and skate along a section of Atlantic Avenue in Uptown that was closed to car traffic.
Metro helped fund the event as part of its Open Streets program.
What was the estimated attendance? Looks real low. 🙁
It was estimated to be around 30,000 people
How ironic Metro sponsor this wonderful event, yet at the same time, have it scheduled during a crucial partial shutdown of the Metro Blue Line, causing people who wanted to go to this wonderful event the inconvenience of a bus bridge, knowing full well that the buses cannot support enough riders with bicycles? You did such a great job with Metro Gold Line service during the previous weekend’s CicLAvia, yet you failed big time this Saturday.
