San Gabriel Valley Active Transportation Initiative
The San Gabriel Valley Active Transportation Initiative is a multi-jurisdictional partnership among the cities of Glendora, Duarte, Irwindale, La Puente, Monrovia and Montebello, and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. The program has five major components:
- Active Transportation Plans to provide the participating communities with their first bicycle and pedestrian master plans
- Regional Greenway Network Plan to study the 80 miles of undeveloped storm channels and washes that cross the San Gabriel Valley
- Regional Wayfinding Signage to design signage and a plan to link existing, in development, and proposed city level bicycle routes in the San Gabriel Valley
- Evaluation to collect robust data on bicycle and pedestrian data in the participating communities along existing regional county-controlled bikeways
- Education and Encouragement to provide residents in participating communities with free bicycle safety and maintenance education
Arrow Highway Regional Corridor Plan
The Multi-modal Regional Corridor Plan for Arrow Highway is a plan that will develop recommendations for bicycle and pedestrian enhancements to improve mobility and safety across five cities: Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and Claremont. The recommendations are shaped by public input, relevant data, and best practices.

Bicycle Friendly Business District
Glendora participates in the Bicycle Friendly Business District (BFBD) program, designed to encourage healthier, more sustainable and vibrant communities by promoting the use of bicycles for short trips to businesses and workplaces. Encouraging people to frequent commercial corridors on foot, bike and transit can be an effective way to increase local economic activity. In Los Angeles County, studies have shown that businesses that actively engaged with participants attending bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly community events saw increases in sales. Other benefits for businesses include:
- Free Marketing on BFBD promotional materials
- More/New Customers - "Bike Local/Buy Local"
- Request-a-Bicycle-Rack program for participating businesses, while supplies last
- Free up car parking for driving customers
- Healthier, Happier Communities
While there is no direct cost, participating businesses are asked to help encourage bicycling by committing to the following for at least 12 months:
- Support local bicycle education and outreach efforts by sharing messaging and notices on social media, posting flyers, etc.
- Display a BFBD window cling or poster to advertise program participation
- Offer at least one (1) incentive or service to encourage customers and employees to bike, such as discounts on purchases, free item or service with purchase, or public bicycle accommodations
