Metro provides bike parking at many stations throughout the system to improve first and last mile connections. Access a Metro Rail System Map here and find the bike parking most convenient for you.
The best way to keep your bike safe is to lock it properly. Lock the frame preferably with a U-Lock, and then lock the wheels, and any other quick release components, with an additional bike lock. Locking tip: Use an additional U-Lock to secure wheels and frame to bike rack. Electric bikes are permitted to park at Metro bike racks, but gas or electric motorized scooters are not. Do not lock bikes to station railings or furnishings; they will be subject to removal.
Metro offers secure bike lockers for rent at select stations.
Administration of the Metro Bike Locker Program is in the process of transitioning online. In the meantime, please use the Bike Locker Rental Agreement (Contrato de Aquiler para Casillero de Bicicleta) to sign up for a locker. This form can be printed and mailed with payment.

Metro Bike Hubs will provide secure bicycle parking at high-demand stations. The first Bike Hub at El Monte Station is scheduled to open in early 2015.
This network of bicycle parking rooms/stand alone facilities across Metro’s system will increase bicycle parking capacity and provide an alternative to taking bikes on transit or using bike racks. Metro Bike Hubs will also have other useful resources for bicycle commuters, like repair stands and air pumps.
Similar to Metro’s current bike locker program, Bike Hub access will be available for registered users who pay a small fee. Only registered users can enter the area, where 24-hour surveillance cameras also provide security.
Metro Bike Hubs are currently planned at five locations - with more to come in the future:
- El Monte (opening summer 2015)
- Hollywood/Vine Red Line Station
- Culver City Expo Line Station
- North Hollywood Red/Orange Line Station
- Union Station
Several similar facilities already exist across the county:
