Join Bicycle Transit and BCycle on a bike and train excursion through downtown Los Angeles. The WalkShop will highlight the work done to fully integrate Metro Bike Share with Metro’s transit Pass TAP—the first bike share program to fully integrate with transit. The ride will also feature the MyFig project. Figueroa’s new protected bicycle lanes connect the Heart of DTLA to University of Southern California, Expo Park, and the new LA Football Club stadium to the south crossing 27 intersections.
The WalkShop will set off on Metro Bikes using Metro TAP cards to unlock bikes. The group will cruise south down Figueroa taking in the MyFig Project down USC where bikes will be returned, and the group will pick up Metro’s Expo Line. The route will head north to Pico Station where the group will disembark and pick up Metro Bikes at the Pico & Flower Metro Bike station. Depending on available time, the group will ride to either Union Station or back to the hotel. During the tour, we’ll stop at a couple unique Bike Share stations to discuss placement and challenges. Total biking distance will be about 6 miles.
This WalkShop is co-sponsored by Bicycle Transit Systems and BCycle.
