LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced Thursday it relaunched its electric bike share program on the Westside.
“Coming back stronger from COVID-19 requires us to reimagine how we interact with our public spaces — and that means rethinking how we can access them on two wheels,” Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti said.

A row of Los Angeles Metro Bikeshare bicycles sits on West First Street in Los Angeles, California on September 10, 2017.
“Bringing these new bike share improvements to the Westside is a clear sign of our commitment to expand clean, healthy transportation options to Angelenos across our city.”
The stations are located throughout the Westside and include Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney Boulevard, the Rose District, downtown Mar Vista, Motor Avenue in Palms, the Museum of Jurassic Technology, Dockweiler State Beach, the Ballona Creek Bike Path and the E (Expo) Line.
“Bike Share is one of our key initiatives to improve first/last mile access to and from our stations. The combination of transit and bike share can help everyone better access local destinations and help reduce auto trips in our county,” L.A. Metro CEO Phillip Washington said.
