This fall, students will be able to rent bikes on campus and throughout Westwood. The bike-share program will be the same one used in West Hollywood and Santa Monica. How do you feel about this issue?

  • The bike share will help students who are already comfortable cycling on heavily trafficked streets. (31%, 257 Votes)
  • Westwood does not need a bike share, and cyclists could further congest already crowded streets. (12%, 100 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (6%, 45 Votes)
