City of Los Angeles Councilman Joe Buscaino and team use the new Metro Bike with some of his staff to go to lunch from City Hall to the Arts District in #dtla. “It was a great experience and I strongly recommended as a means of getting around downtown, stated Buscaino”
Metro Bike Share is a first of its kind regional bike share program. What makes Metro Bike Share special is that it is administered by Metro Los Angeles Los Phase 1 of this ambitious project consists of a close partnership between Metro, the City of #LosAngeles, and the system operator, Bicycle Transit Systems. The Downtown Los Angeles pilot system launched on July 7, 2016 with 61 stations and over 700 hundred bikes to help people make trips close, fun, and affordable. Future phases will expand Metro Bike Share into more communities.
At the Metro Bike Share website, customers can register their TAP transit fare card to ride #Metro #bikes, using the same card to also ride Metro buses and trains. The regional administrative approach of this project combined with bike share fare integration with buses and trains complements a burgeoning shift to transit and bike use.
