About

The Metro Bike Share system features hundreds of  bikes available 24/7, 365 days a year in Downtown Los Angeles. 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 Downtown Angeles. 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 Metro TAP card, you can register it and purchase a Monthly or Flex pass. If you don't have a TAP card, purchase a pass and we'll mail you a shiny new Metro Bike Share registered 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.

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.

LADOT is a leader in the planning, design, construction, and operations of transportation systems in the City of Los Angeles and partners with sister agencies to improve transportation service and infrastructure in the city and the region.
