The National BTWD celebration is on Friday, May 17 th . Once again this year, Metro and many other transportation agencies throughout the county traditionally mark the Thursday before (May 16 th) with free rides. Just bring your bike or helmet to claim your free ride on any Metro bus or rail line. At non-gated Metro rail stations, there is no need to tap, just show the Metro fare officer your bike or helmet. At Metro’s rail-gated stations, use the intercom located near the fare gates to notify an attendant who will open the ADA gates for you.
Other agencies offering free transit rides to bicyclists on Bike to Work Day include:
- Beach Cities Transit
- Culver City Bus
- City of Gardena Bus
- Big Blue Bus
- Pasadena Transit
- Norwalk Transit
On Bike to Work Day, you can find pit stops throughout Los Angeles County. View the Bike Month map to find a pit stop near your route (indicated on the map by the green cyclist icon). At these pit stops, you will find refreshments to fuel you on your ride as well as free giveaways. Metro will be hosting our very own pit stop at Union Station in front of the Metro Bike Hub .
If you don't currently own a bike, Metro Bike Share offers convenient round-the-clock access to a fleet of bicycles for short trips, available 24/7, 365 days a year in Downtown LA, Central LA, the Port of LA, and the Westside.
Want to start planning your commute? Google Maps is a good place to start. All Metro buses have bike racks for riders to store their bicycles. If you're taking your bike on a train, please follow the signs to place your bike in the designated areas. And a friendly reminder: bicycles are allowed on trains as long as you can safely board without blocking any aisles and doorways.
