The Metro needs to be expanded so that it's a viable option for travel as it is in other major cities.
Bike lanes are great, but not when they compete with car traffic. Some bike lanes are downright dangerous not to mention, clogged with exhaust from the cars.
In my opinion, bike lanes should be set up in a way that protects the bikers, such as the bike route that goes along the Los Angeles River...No Cars! Perhaps an expansion of the beach bike paths all the way to Ventura :). and a protected no car bike lane where the Red Cars used to travel from downtown to the beach. Now that would be nice!
That being said, hunting for a parking space can be a headache!
