The following media pieces focused around transportation trends and issues within Central Long Beach. We reported on what we found to be most concerning to the residents in the area based off feedback from city officials. While many tout Long Beach as one the most bike friendly cities in the state, some complain that the Metro is too slow in expanding its light rails and completing much needed renovations.

The Blue Line Metro runs along Long Beach Boulevard crossing through Willow Street, Pacific Coast Highway and Anaheim Street in Central Long Beach.

The cycling culture continues to grow in Central Long Beach.
