Los Angeles Department of City Planning Embraces the Treadmill Bike

LA department of City Planning embraces Treadmill Bike
The 2010 Bicycle Plan developed by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning was recently brought to my attention. The plan states that there are now more than 60 fixed transit stations located within the City of Los Angeles. However, since most travelers still need to go some distance from the station to reach their final destination, the plan suggests incorporating other transportation options within these transit hubs. Examples include car share and vehicle charging stations, and a variety of services oriented to bicyclists such as attendant operated showers, restrooms, bicycle repair, and bicycle lockers. While these are all great developments, what I find most exciting about the plan is that the artist rendering of a proposed mobility hub includes a traveler leaving the station on a Treadmill Bike! It looks like the Treadmill Bike might just be the future of urban transportation after all!
