Metro bike share opens in the Port of LA

13 new stations and 120 bikes

Metro’s bike share program just keeps growing. Today, was the rollout of the latest wave of bike hubs at the Port of LA, reports The Source.

Thirteen new stations and 120 bikes are available at the Battleship IOWA, the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, Wilmington Waterfront Park, and the Ports O’ Call Village, which is due to be redeveloped. (The full map of stations can be viewed here.)

Bike share is a great idea for the waterfront, which is spread out and separated by large parking lots—now, instead of a mile-long walk from the fish market to a nearby craft brewery, it’s just a short bike ride.

Metro Bike Share is officially opened at the LA Waterfront!!!

Metro opened bike share in Pasadena earlier this month, and plans to open more stations in Venice later this summer, and Culver City might team up with LA to install bike hubs next year.

The Source has said Metro is also looking into the possibility of future expansion to the rest of the county, including North Hollywood, East Los Angeles and Boyle Heights, Burbank, Glendale, Culver City, Palms and elsewhere in the San Gabriel Valley.
