Metro Launches Electric Bike Program

November 29, 2018

DTLA – Those who love bikes but aren’t crazy about pedaling are in luck. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has launched a three-month pilot program to test out new electric bikes for its Bike Share network.  The 10 electric two-wheelers are in Downtown Los Angeles, and the pilot project launched on Nov. 8. The electric motor complements the cyclists’ own pedal power and can help the bikes reach speeds of up to 17 miles per hour. The electric bikes are priced the same as traditional rides in the Bike Share program — $1.75 for the first 30 minutes — and are available to any Metro pass holder. The bikes can be located on the Metro Bike Share app and are identified by a green and white lightning bolt icon. Those who try the bikes will be asked to take a survey on the experience. More information is at bikeshare.metro.net.
