How It Works


1. Release

Buy a pass and get started.

Let's get rolling!

Purchase a pass at any station with a kiosk, with the Metro Bike Share app, or online.

Visit our Classic, Electric and Smart Bike pages for more information on the different bikes.


2. Ride

Get going!

Ride cool. Be Safe.

Be smart and always follow the rules of the road. Helmets dramatically reduce the risk of head injury in a bicycle crash. Riders under 18 are required by California Law to wear a helmet.

Find more safe riding tips on our riding tips page.


3. Return / Lock

End at any station.

Keep your bike close, but don't keep it forever!

Never leave your bike unattended and always properly return your bike.

Use the Metro Bike Share app to find stations near you!
