Walk ‘n Rollers will also offer free safety inspections and minor bicycle repairs for residents that ride to the event. For a full list of Public Works Day events, visit


  • The Public Works Department launched its 2024 Transportation Safety Campaign. Each quarter in 2024 will focus on a different transportation safety theme. Under the campaign slogan – Traffic Safety Starts with Me – the campaign aims to teach all road users how to travel safely and keep each other safe on Beverly Hills streets. CLICK HERE for more information.

  • On-street, striped lane for one-way bicycle travel
  • Typically adjacent to vehicle traffic traveling in the same direction

  • Can be placed in one direction in constricted rights-of-way

Below are some educational and fun activities you can do from home:


Minimum Grid Bicycle Markings


On January 4, 2022, the City Council approved installation of a Minimum Grid Bikeway Network. The term "minimum grid" refers to the concept of quickly implementing a basic bikeway network, while also continuing to pursue longer-range efforts to expand and upgrade cycling infrastructure. View the January 4, 2022 staff report and visit the Minimum Grid webpage for more details. Staff anticipates installation of the Minimum Grid Network will be completed by April 2022.


Bike Counter

Bike Counter

On January 13, 2022, the City installed a real time bike counts display on North Santa Monica Boulevard. This display shows in real time how many bicyclists have passed by the sign per day and total bicyclists per year, which will help staff better understand existing bicycling conditions, such as how many bicyclists ride during adjacent special events, during certain weather conditions, and at certain times of day. This data will provide a holistic picture of how bicyclists are currently using the street, which in turn will help the City conduct informed, data-driven transportation planning. CLICK HERE to view the cyclist count data.

The bike counter also counts pedestrians passing by the counter. CLICK HERE to view the pedestrian count data.


Bike Rack-on-Request Program

 Bike Rack-On-Request

The Beverly Hills Bike Rack-On-Request Program provides residents and business owners in the City of Beverly Hills the opportunity to request a bike rack location for installation in the public right-of-way in commercial areas (if feasible). The bike racks are available free of charge. Click here for more information.

Beverly Hills Bike Share

Beverly Hills Bike Share Logo




In 2015, the City of Beverly Hills was the second city in Los Angeles County to implement a bike share system with a fleet of 50 smart bicycles distributed among 10 bike share stations. Beverly Hills Bike Share was a valued feature of Beverly Hill's mobility system for approximately 5 years.

On July 31, 2021, the City suspended the Beverly Hills Bike Share system due to the bike share equipment approaching the end of its useful life and a high subsidy per ride. The City is exploring new opportunities to provide shared mobility in Beverly Hills.

The City appreciates the collective community effort it took to launch the system and wants to thank the Beverly Hills Bike Share members that have supported the system over the years.
