Next week is Bike Week LA, and Bike to Work Day takes place Thursday, May 15. Metro is once again offering free rides to all those who board with a bicycle or bicycle helmet on that day. To claim your free ride on Metro Rail at latched stations, use the Gate Help intercom located near the fare gates to notify an attendant who will open the ADA gates for you.
Additional details and tips on how to bring your bike on board below.
- Board trains using doors marked with yellow decals.
- Always walk your bike within Metro stations or on trains.
- For everyone’s safety, do not bring bikes on escalators; use the stairs or elevators instead.
- Elevator priority will be given to passengers with disabilities.
- Do not use emergency exit gates at turnstiles except during emergencies or unless directed by law enforcement or Metro personnel.
- Observe all Bikes on Metro guidelines.
- If bringing your bike on a bus, try to sit or stand near the front of the bus to keep an eye on your bicycle. At your stop, notify the operator you will be removing your bike and exit from the front door.
