About two weeks ago, we started an online survey to record your input with regards to our bicycle wayfinding project. Your suggestions (both online and in-person at our wayfinding signage workshops) have provided a lot of great locations and ideas for destinations where you think bicycle wayfinding signage would be most beneficial. Below the fold are a few snippets of what has been discussed thus far (which will hopefully inspire those of you who haven’t yet shared your ideas to do so). Of course, you can still provide your input by filling out our online wayfinding signage survey here or attend our wayfinding workshop in Venice on March 14th, 2012 starting at 7:30 PM at the Oakwood Recreation Center.
Here are just a few of the great ideas submitted to us online via survey:
Destinations that are important include, but are not limited to: light rail/subway stations; university and college campuses; parks; schools; libraries; shopping districts; neighboring cities; post offices; centers; LA River.
Put wayfinding signs on streets at the point where they intersect a bike path, such as the Orange Line, to both direct bicyclists and to try and entice drivers to try the bike path (advertising to promote the product). If the signs only state Bike Path, then they can be used for any bike path.
Some of the destinations suggested thus far:
Northridge Metrolink Station, UCLA, Venice Beach, Expo Stations, L.A. River Bike Path, Orange Line Bike Path, Cornfield Park, Koreatown, etc.
Also, here is the geographic breakdown of the survey inputs thus far. The Westside leads with 56 percent of input, followed by the Central City (18%), Valley (17%), and Harbor (6%). Special thanks to everyone who came (and will be coming) to the wayfinding workshops and/or completed the online survey. As always, your input is greatly appreciated.
