Metro Logged 182,482 Trips In First Year Of Bike Share Program

Metro is celebrating its Bike Share Program’s one-year anniversary with a few important numbers.

Since starting its Bike Share Program in downtown Los Angeles last year in July, Metro has logged a total of 182,482 trips, that’s according to data released by the transport agency.

Metro said the logged trips equal to a total of 452,840 miles covered—which is like riding a bike from L.A. to San Francisco 1,303 times. The program certainly achieved its goal of one ride per bike per day!

Aside from that, Metro’s system also has helped remove approximately 430,000 pounds of carbon dioxide form the air—which is about 46 cars taken off the road.

The program currently has 61 stations all over the downtown area. According to Metro, 6,000 Bike Share passes have been sold since the program started.

Metro plans to expand its Bike Share Program and will be debuting more stations in the Port of Los Angeles and Venice later this month.
