Go Metro this Sunday to CicLAvia — South LA

Don’t miss the final CicLAvia of 2021 in South LA! Enjoy five miles of open streets by bike, skate, or foot on Sunday, Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. People of all ages and abilities are welcome.

The South LA route is located near multiple Metro E Line (Expo) stops, including a hub at Expo/Crenshaw Station where Metro will also have an outreach booth.

Metro Bike Share will have tents at the Crenshaw Hub and at the Expo Park Hub. Learn more about the bike share program, grab a bike and pick up a limited-edition Metro Bike Share pin! Metro Bikes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at nearby stations and at the tent. Plan ahead and download the Metro Bike Share app to purchase a pass. Don’t forget to tag @bikemetro on social, and always remember to return your Metro Bike to a station or to a Metro Bike Share team member at either of the tents to end your trips!

If you plan on riding your own bicycle at CicLAvia and will be taking Metro Rail to the event, here are a few tips to follow:

  • Avoid long lines at TAP vending machines by loading fare or a pass on your TAP card in advance.
  • Consider the TAP app for safe and easy contactless payment.
  • Bicyclists should use the wider ADA fare gates and NOT the turnstiles or emergency exit swing gates.
  • If boarding with bicycle, please use allocated bike area on trains to avoid blocking doors.
  • Bikes are prohibited on escalators and should be transported instead via elevators or stairs at all rail stations.

For more information about detours on Metro Bus lines during the event, visit Metro’s Service Advisory page or check Transit app. For more information on routes and connections, use Transit app or call 323.GO.METRO.

Please note that masks are currently required on public transit and in all indoor public places in Los Angeles County, as well as at events with over 10,000 attendees. If you forget your mask, there will be complimentary masks available at the CicLAvia Info Booths.

CicLAvia is funded through the Metro Open Streets Grant Program, which provides funding to one-day events that temporarily close city streets to cars and open them to people walking, biking and rolling. The goal of the program is to offer people opportunities to walk and bike on city streets, or try transit and foster civic engagement that supports walking, biking and skating projects and programs.
