About

The Metro Bike Share system features approximately 1,400 bikes available 24/7, 365 days a year in Downtown LA, Pasadena, Port of LA and Venice. Metro Bike Share offers convenient round-the-clock access to a fleet of bicycles for short trips and to get to transit on your schedule. Metro Bike Share is an additional public transportation option for Angelenos and visitors to get around. It is fast, fun and affordable!

The Metro Bike Share station network provides about twice as many bike parking spaces — or what we refer to as “dock points” — as there are bikes. This maximizes available bike share parking when you arrive to your destination station. You can see real-time bike and dock availability on the app and online station map.

If you already have a TAP card, you can register it when you sign up for a pass online. If you do not have a TAP card, don't worry, you do not need one to ride. You can use your credit card to sign up for a pass online and walk up to any station kiosk and follow the prompts on the screen to identify yourself as a Metro Bike Share pass holder to get a bike. Monthly Pass Holders that sign up and do not have a TAP card will be mailed a free Metro Bike Share TAP card!

Metro Bike Share is the fast, easy, and fun way to ride, anytime. Get a bike from any Metro Bike Share station, go for a ride, and give it back at any station. It’s easy — just like riding a bike!

 

About the Program Partners

The Metro Bike Share pilot in Downtown Los Angeles is a partnership between Metro and the City of Los Angeles, The City of Pasadena and The Port of LA.

Metro is a multimodal transportation agency that is really three companies in one: a major operator that transports about 1.5 million boarding passengers on an average weekday on a fleet of 2,200 clean air buses and six rail lines, a major construction agency that oversees many bus, rail, highway and other mobility related building projects, and it is the lead transportation planning and programming agency for Los Angeles County.  Overseeing one of the largest public works programs in America, Metro is, literally, changing the urban landscape of the Los Angeles region. Dozens of transit, highway and other mobility projects largely funded by Measure R are under construction or in the planning stages. These include the innovative Metro Bike Share program, five new rail lines, the I-5 widening and other major projects.
