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.
This year, The Laurel Foundation celebrated its 20 years hosting their Golf Tournament.
Rodeo Realty took part in the annual event by being a sponsor of the tournament. As a sponsor, Rodeo Realty helped The Laurel Foundation’s fundraising goal of $100,000, which goes towards helping more than 500 inner city, at-risk children and their families affected by HIV/AIDS to attend The Laurel Foundation’s program.
Their programs tackle the emotional and social challenges of HIV/AIDS by constructing environments that support the mental and physical welfare of the participants. Their programs give participants the tools to build self-sufficient, productive, and healthy lives.
This year’s Golf Tournament was hosted at the elite El Caballero Country Club, one of the most exclusive golf clubs in Southern California.
The event started with a continental breakfast and proceeded with golfers being sent off on the par 71 championship course with their own personal caddy in a golf cart equipped with a GPS system.
At each hole, golfers were greeted by drink and food sponsors (vodka, tequila, beer etc.) and had a chance to win prizes at skills contests set up throughout the course.
The event ended with a fully catered after party with hosted bar, silent auction, and awards show.
Rodeo Realty is proud to help The Laurel Foundation and their mission.
