The LADOT Bike Program recently took a giant leap forward with our website’s new interactive map, where you can see both existing and designated bikeway facilities from the City’s 2010 Bicycle Master Plan. This map is a great online resource to view L.A.’s designated 1,684 mile bikeway network.
Just below our interactive Google Map, you can also download our latest PDF bikeway maps. These maps are divided into three general geographical regions; San Fernando Valley, Westside/Central City, and Harbor. In addition to showing the location of existing bike paths, lanes, and routes, the map also shows streets rated by bicycling comfort level.
For those who need a paper copy, you can also request that Bicycle Maps be mailed to your residence or business by filling out this form. This is a very popular service that we do here at LADOT Bikeways, averaging about 30 – 40 requests per month. More on how your request goes from request to map below the fold.
How Requests get Filled
Once you’ve filled out and submitted our online form, your requests are then transmitted to us as an email. We go through each email to determine which maps – Westside/Central City, Valley, Harbor – to send out. When requesting maps, you have the option of checking one, two, or all three maps – its up to you!
We then manually write each of your mailing addresses and stick the map you want into an appropriate envelop. Please remember to completely and correctly fill out the form or you won’t get your bike maps! In order for us to fulfill your request, we’ll need your name, address, phone number (if we run into any problems), and which maps you want. Once you’ve done all of that, you can expect to receive your maps in one to two weeks.
