Metro implemented a regional bike share system in 2017. It features approximately 1,400 bikes available 24/7, 365 days a year in downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, Port of Los Angeles, and Venice. Metro Bike Share passes may be purchased at bike stations or online with various pricing, and in the future, it may be integrated with Metro’s TAP program. Metro also provides bike share data including trip data, origin/destination data, station information, station status, miles traveled, and emissions reduced through their website.
Other cities throughout Los Angeles County are also implementing bike share programs including the Cities of Santa Monica and Long Beach. In the City of Santa Monica, their bike share operator provides user data via a closed network to City staff. The City of Long Beach has installed Eco-Counter systems at select locations to count bicyclists along these routes. In addition, Metro is rolling out a regional bike data collection program utilizing a variety of detection technologies. The initial phase of the program will pilot various bike detection technologies in varying types of bike facilities and develop system and user requirements for a program-wide deployment. The City of Long Beach is using SoBi as its bike share program operator. They provide reports showing where people traveled based on GPS data.
