[TransportNews] TheSource: Bike share expansion to Pasadena, Port of L.A. and Venice approved by Metro Board

BY  , 

Under the contract approved by the Metro Board on Thursday, bike share would arrive in Pasadena, the Port of Los Angeles and Venice next summer. Final station locations will be announced at a later date.
From the staff report, here’s an update on use of Metro Bike Share in DTLA:
In the first quarter, the program surpassed 50,000 total rides and 2,000 annual flex or monthly pass-holders. As another measure of performance, we also track number of rides per bike per day. The system goal is to reach two rides per bike per day by the 12 month mark of operations. We are at one ride per bike per day and showing steady growth in this metric. The Metro Bike Share program continues to work towards increasing program awareness, growing ridership and increasing pass sales.

From Twitter:

Bike Share in Pasadena is Just Around the Corner with an Expected Launch Date of July, 2017 
Learn more about  bike share & station siting coming in 2017. Meet with DOT staff Oct 27 6-8 p.m. 4th fl Pasadena Central Library

My three cents: more east-west bike lanes across the entire city for those of us living south of the 210 please 🙂
