The Community Climate Action Summit is tomorrow and we’re getting excited! The first session will begin promptly at 10:30am, so we ask that you arrive early to check-in. There will be coffee and refreshments, so if you arrive early it will give you plenty of time to check-in and grab your morning treats before the program starts.
Bike Valet and Child Care are provided.
While we hope as many people as possible can bike, walk or bus to the Summit, underground parking is available at St. Monica’s access via the driveway located at 725 California Avenue in Santa Monica.

You are cordially invited to share your views in this 10-minute survey conducted by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). The purpose of this survey is to hear first-hand from people who ride bicycles in LA County about their experiences while sharing the road with buses. The intent is to learn how bikes and buses interact with each other while traveling down the road; how street markings, signs, and bike lane designs help or detract from the safety and comfort of people who ride bicycles. The survey is not related to using the bike racks on buses or riding the bus itself.
Your opinions and feedback will help Metro, the County and cities throughout the Southland design streets that serve the needs of people who ride bicycles and transit for many years to come.
They want to reach as many people who ride bicycles as possible! Please forward this along to those you feel will be interested. They will be raffling an iPad and 3 Bike Metro Prize Packs to survey participants.
Take the survey today and thank you for your participation!
