L.A.'s second CicLAvia is designed to open approximately 7.5 miles of city streets between Boyle Heights and East Hollywood to pedestrians, bicyclists, joggers, skateboarders and others for a day of recreation and social integration. The free public event will take place between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Metro bus lines impacted by the CicLAvia route are: Metro Line 2, 4, 10 (Rte. 48), 14 (Rte. 37), 16, 18, 20, 26 (Rtes. 51 & 52), 28, 30, 33, 40, 42, 53, 55, 60, 62, 70, 71, 76, 78 (Rte. 79), 81, 83, 84 (Rte. 68), 90 (Rte. 91), 92, 94, 96, 439, 445, 460, 485, 487, 603, 720, 733, 760, 794, and 910.
Under the direction of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, a number intersections along the Ciclavia route will enable vehicles to cross. However, Metro patrons should anticipate bus detours and delays to service, as well as the temporary relocation of bus stops along the route. Temporary stops will be located as near to original stops as possible.
Metro Rail will be the best option for L.A. County enthusiasts to attend Ciclavia without driving. Metro Red/Purple Line stations along the route include: Vermont/Santa, Vermont/Beverly, Wilshire/Vermont, Westlake/MacArthur Park, 7th/Metro, Pershing Square and Civic Center Stations. The Little Tokyo/Arts District Metro Gold Line Station is also near the route as it passes from Downtown L.A. to East Los Angeles and back.
