LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority’s bike sharing system expanded to the Port of Los Angeles Monday, with 13 stations and 120 bicycles.
L.A. County Supervisor Janice Hahn and Metro officials were on hand in Downtown Harbor to cut the ribbon and announce the launch.
“Bike Share users will enjoy up-close waterfront access and can easily explore museums, an aquarium, a battleship, craft marketplace, expansive marinas and beaches as well as dining and shopping,” Port Executive Director Gene Seroka said.
Along with the Port of L.A., Metro Bike Share is also available in downtown L.A. and Pasadena. Metro plans to expand it to Venice later this summer. The system has more than 1,400 bikes overall.
Those who want to use Metro Bike Share have several options: they can walk up and purchase a ride using a credit card for $3.50 per 30 minutes, or they can also sign up for a monthly or yearly pass. A $20 monthly pass gets you unlimited rides for all trips that are 30 minutes or less.
With the $40 annual pass, all rides are $1.75 per 30 minutes.
People can sign up by downloading the Metro Bike Share app or by going online here.
