With my new office space in downtown it couldn’t have been a better time for Metro Bike Share to come to LA. If you don’t already know driving and parking is a nightmare in downtown. Now with Metro Bike I can pick up a bike a block away from my office and head anywhere I need to go.
How it works:
All you need to do is walk up to one of the 65 stations around Los Angeles, swipe your credit card and you have a fully functional 3-speed bike to roam about the city. With over 1000 bicycles around the city you’re never more than a few blocks away from your next ride. It’s pretty awesome.
Today, I headed out to grab some tea in the Arts District of Los Angeles.
If you don’t live in DTLA don’t worry! Metro also plans to expand the system in the next few years to communities such as Pasadena, Huntington Park, Glendale, Burbank, North Hollywood, East Los Angeles, Exposition Park and others. Stay tuned for more news about the launch.
