Guess what #BikeLA? Bikeshare is coming to Los Angeles in Spring 2016! 1,090 bikes at 65 strategically located stations will transform the way we move around Downtown LA.
What is bikeshare you ask? Bikeshare is a fleet of bicycles available for check out 24/7! Bikes can be picked up from one station and returned to any other in the system. It is an ideal way to get around and a new way to see LA!
In the next two weeks, you will have an opportunity to join us to test out the bikes and give feedback about the proposed station map! We heard from many of you about your preferred station locations already but if you haven’t yet had a chance to give your two cents, come on by! We’re all ears! And yes, you will be able to test ride the bikes! There will be a demo kiosk, fully equipped with bikes. Did we say bikes? Bikeshare? Yes, we’re excited, we hope you are too!
Wait, there’s more! Bring your wallets! While testing these bikes is free, it will be sure to induce your hunger. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to eat from fresh and local eateries at each of these upcoming events:
- Thursday, July 30, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Arts District Farmers Market (corner of Traction and Third, 90013)
- Wednesday, August 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Lunch Á La Park in Grand Park (between Hill and Grand, 90012)
- Sunday, August 9, from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m at the Metro Booth at the downtown Culver City Hub at CicLAvia: Culver City Meets Venice
If you’re wondering who is coordinating these events, it is the all-star collaboration between LADOT + Metro + BTS (and their partners B-Cycle, Ridescout, Toole Design Group and BikeHub).
