Metro Bike Share is launching the Bike Share for Business pilot program, offering businesses a way to purchase bulk passes at a discount for employees, tenants and clients in downtown L.A. Pricing for monthly pass is as low as $6 per month per participant.
With businesses becoming increasingly environmentally and socially conscious, the new program is a great way to promote a healthy lifestyle and provide environmentally-friendly and timesaving options to users. Metro Bike Share is an excellent addition to a sustainability and/or wellness program. Employees, tenants, clients and guests will love riding a bike to the train station, a meeting, lunch and more without the hassles of driving.
A recent enrollee in Bike Share for Business had this to say about the program:
We’re committed to attracting and developing the best transportation professionals in the consulting business, which means we are always competing for the best talent. Along with our other commuter benefits like Metro transit passes, the costs are small compared to the personal and professional benefits for our staff. Bike Share gives us an efficient way to get around downtown, expands our reach for lunchtime options, connects us to regional transit, and supports healthy travel choices throughout the day.
–Jeremy Klop, Principal at Fehr & Peers
As a special prize for jumping onboard early, Metro is offering an introductory 50 percent discount for six months for businesses that sign up for the Gold Pass. This offer ends April 30.
Metro’s Bike Share team can provide in-person presentations and pop-up registration events for businesses located in the downtown L.A. service area.
A Metro Bike Share pass can also be registered to an existing Metro TAP transit pass (including BTAP passes) through this program. There is a six month commitment to enroll.
The Metro Bike Share program launched last July 7 and has been gaining momentum and popularity, with more than 120,000 rides taken thus far. This new transportation option offers shared bicycles for short-term rental at 61 stations in downtown LA. Users can rent, ride and return Metro Bikes at any station in the system.
