If you have ever taken a bike to Union Station, there will soon be a new place to park your bike. The Union Station Metro Bike Hub is opening on Wednesday, November 15. The public is invited to the grand opening.

The festivities will include treats and tours of the new facility beginning at 9 a.m. This will be the second Metro Bike Hub opening this year after the Hollywood/Vine Metro Bike Hub opened in May. The Union Station Metro Bike Hub will be the biggest one yet with a capacity for 192 bikes and the Hub will be accessible to paid members 24/7.

There will also be real-time Union Station transit info for Metro trains and buses, Metrolink and Amtrak — there’s no need to worry about missing your train or bus when you’re locking up your bike. It will offer bike repairs and retail during staffed hours. It’s a one stop shop for all of your bicycle needs. A seven day pass costs $5, a 30 day pass is $12 and a year pass is $60.

  1. While the “growing” of bike transit in urban LA has many ecological and social benefits, the Los Angeles Union Station Historical Society (LAUSHS) disapproves of the architecture of the new Bike Hub, soon to open next to iconic Los Angeles Union Station. The LAUS Bike Hub’s 21st Century-style has been likened to a “mini-mart”, a “Home Depot tuff-shed” and even a dog kennel. It does not “blend” as it should, to quote Mayor Garcetti, with our Hispanic-style “Cathedral of Transportation”. The $2.4 Million Bike Hub, which even its architectural firm described as a ‘barn” or “shed”-style building, will be open to the elements on our windy, rainy days. This stain on our transit system might have been avoided had Metro consulted with LAUSHS, a US Dept. of Interior “Section 106” historic reference organization, in a timely manner. More bikes good; Bike Hub bad!
