Visitors, residents, workers and students can get around Pasadena without driving their cars. That’s because Pasadena’s General Plan has as one of its seven guiding principles that Pasadena will be a city where people can circulate without cars.Named the most bike-friendly city in LA County, Pasadena has 50 miles of bike routes to jobs, shopping centers, schools and Metro Gold Line stations. Our Pasadena Transit now operates seven routes. And MTA recently introduced a faster way to get to LAX, on the Union Station Fly Away. A new pedestrian plan is also being developed to improve the quality of sidewalks, crosswalks and paths for those who walk, whether to work, stores, transit stops or just for enjoyment.And for those who work in Pasadena, JPL, Caltech, Art Center College of Design, Western Asset Plaza and the city of Pasadena are some of the city’s large employers providing incentives to thousands of employees to carpool, take mass transit, bike or walk to work.Alternatives to solo driving? They exist in Pasadena.
