Bike share is a public bike system that can be accessed any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long. These bikes can be used to make short trips locally, to get to a transit station, or to complete the last leg of your transit journey.
Metro Bike Share
The Metro Bike Share system features hundreds of bikes, currently operating in Downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, Venice and the Port of LA and will be expanding soon. 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.
Metro Bike Share Station locations were selected based on proximity to community resources, employment centers, bike infrastructure and transit in consultation with partner agencies, institutions, community groups and the public. Each station has a touchscreen kiosk, a map of the bike share system and surrounding neighborhood, as well as a docking system that releases bikes when accessed using a credit card at the kiosk or with a Metro Bike TAP card at a dock point. You can see real-time bike and dock availability on the app and online station map .
