Metrolink Joins CicLAvia Heart of the Foothills Event for Earth Day

CicLAvia returned for 2018 yesterday, April 22, to celebrate Earth Day and Metrolink was part of the fun!

This time, CicLAvia had a new route called the Heart of the Foothills and connected the cities of San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont with streets opened as recreational space for cyclists, pedestrians, runners and skaters.

During the country’s largest open streets event, participants enjoyed live music, rides, food, safety courses and chances to win prizes.

Metrolink set up a booth at the San Dimas hub and spoke with CicLAvia participants about the benefits of using Metrolink, how we help the environment and were even able to win swag like reusable water bottles.

Metrolink helped riders from throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties join in on the fun by putting additional Bike Cars on all regularly scheduled trains on the San Bernardino Line and by adding two Metro-funded special service trains between L.A. Union Station and Claremont – specifically for this event!

CicLAvia is funded through the Metro Open Streets Grant Program, an initiative aimed at encouraging sustainable transportation. Metro hopes that the event will help residents reimagine the future of transportation in Los Angeles County.
