Regional Bikeshare to Open in DTLA in 2016 and in Pasadena in 2017


LA Metro will award a contract for a regional bikeshare system in June, with full implementation of a 1,000-bike system in downtown Los Angeles before the end of the year: The downtown pilot will open with 65-80 stations, most of them between the 101 and 10 freeways east of Figueroa Avenue. Phase 2 will add 35 more stations in Pasadena along the Metro Gold Line south of the 210 freeway and east of the 710 spur. The Metro RFP currently out on the street is for two years, with possible extensions and an expansion of the system to include nearly 4,000 bikes in a broader service area.The bike-sharing system will allow a rider to take a bike from a docking station, ride it to work or a transit stop, and then drop it off at a different station.
