Culver City eliminates bike and bus lanes for more car lanes

City Council's 3-2 vote to remove protected bike and dedicated bus lanes contradicts the MOVE Culver City project aimed at prioritizing safety and green transportation. The move has been criticized by activists and officials who supported the project.

Culver City in California has voted to eliminate designated bike and bus lanes to make way for more car lanes, despite opposition from residents and public transport advocates.

The protected bike lanes and dedicated bus lanes were part of the 2021 MOVE Culver City project that aimed to prioritise safety and green transportation.

The decision to remove them was taken in a 3-2 vote, despite the opposition from numerous elected officials, students and residents who emphasised the importance of sustainable transport. Bike Culver City tweeted that despite the setback, the future of green transport is on the community’s side.
