Metro’s bike sharing system will expand to the Port of Los Angeles Monday, with 13 stations and 120 bicycles added to the agency’s growing network.

Metro already has 61 stations and around 700 bicycles in downtown L.A. and another 30 stations which were recently added to Pasadena.

Officials with Metro, the Port of Los Angeles and Bicycle Transit Systems, Inc. will officially launch the system with a celebration, news conference, ribbon cutting and bike ride at San Pedro’s Downtown Harbor beginning at 9 a.m.

L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino, Metro CEO Phillip Washington, L.A. County Supervisor Janice Hahn and other officials are scheduled to take part in the event.
