The Los Angeles Department of Transportation and Metro, along with other local transit agencies, will offer free rides Thursday to people with bikes to mark Bike to Work Day.
The free rides will be available on any Metro bus or rail line, and on the city’s DASH and Commuter Express bus services, as well as the LAnow on-demand shared-ride service.
Any rider who either brings a bicycle or wears a bicycle helmet will be given a free ride. To access free LAnow rides, riders need to use the special code BIKELANOW when booking their trips.
“Two wheels are better than four on Bike to Work Day when you can test ride some of the 1,172 total miles of bikeways in the city of Los Angeles,” LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds said. “If you need an assist from LADOT transit, it’s free on Bike to Work Day for people on bikes, as our show of thanks for choosing to ride.”
The National Bike to Work Day celebration will be on Friday. However, Metro and many other transportation agencies throughout Los Angeles County traditionally mark the event one day earlier.
Other agencies offering free transit rides include Antelope Valley Transit Authority, Beach Cities Transit, Culver City Bus, City of Gardena Bus, Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and Pasadena Transit.
