Metro Bike Share

Metro Bike Share riders

Metro Bike Share is a fast, fun and affordable public transportation option. Over 150 stations and 1,500 bikes are available in Downtown and Central LA, and North Hollywood. Find information about Metro Bike Share on the Westside.

How It Works

1. Sign up. You must be at least 16 years old and have a TAP account with an associated credit card. If you already have a TAP card, sign in and register the card to your TAP account. Or you can purchase one when you enroll for Metro Bike Share.

2. Check out a bike. Use your TAP card to release a bike or download the Metro Bike Share app to access mobile check-out. Find available bikes/docks in real time with the station map or Metro Bike Share app.

3. Start riding! Don’t forget your helmet. Never leave your bike unattended and always return your bike to a Metro Bike Share station or designated docking area. To avoid replacement fees, please return the bike undamaged within the allowed check-out time.
