LA is finally getting a bike share system

What do you think?

In April 2012, it was announced that L.A. will implement an ambitious plan: to establish the nation’s second largest bike sharing system. This project was soon abandoned.

But finally, this week, it was announced that by spring 2016, Los Angeles will have  a total of 1,100 bikes in 65 stations across Downtown LA.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board that awarded the contract to Bicycle Transit Systems, Inc., announced: “Metro’s commitment to treating bikeshare as an extension of the transit system lays the foundation for Los Angeles to have one of the most equitable bikeshare systems in the country, one that is truly accessible and affordable to the communities that will benefit most.”
