New Port of Los Angeles Bike Share

By Karen Robes Meeks

Transit and Port of Los Angeles leaders launched on Monday a new bike-sharing system that allows visitors to bike to and from major destinations along the waterfront.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Bike Sharing system gives residents access to about 120 bicycles and 13 bike share stations so they can visit places such as the Downtown Harbor, Ports O’Call Village, Battleship IOWA, Catalina Sea and Air Terminal, L.A. Maritime Museum and Gateway Plaza.

Officials such as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, L.A. County Supervisor and Metro Board Member Janice Hahn, as well as Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino, whose 15th District includes the port, gathered at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
