You may have noticed the new Metro Bike Share dock stations popping up around Silver Lake. Current docks are available at Lucile & Hoover, Rowena & Hyperion, Glendale & Silver Lake and Hoover & Fountain with new docks coming to Hyperion & Tracy and Sunset & Silver Lake. Some bikes even come with electric assist (useful in hilly Silver Lake).Metro offers Daily Passes for $5, 30 Day Passes for $17 and 365 Day Passes for $150. There are reduced fares for seniors, students and people with disabilities. Metro E-bikes cost $1 to unlock and ride for $1.75 per 30 minutes. (No added cost for holders of 30 day, 365 day, and reduced fare passes.) You can pay at a kiosk for either a single ride or a Daily Pass.

Use a Metro TAP card or the Metro Bike Share app to unlock a bike. You can find out more on how to use Metro Bike Share, find a map of existing and coming stations and download the Metro Bike Share App at the Metro Bike Share website: https://bikeshare.metro.net
