The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and the City of Pasadena have partnered to bring Metro Bike Share to Pasadena. As of July 14, 2017; 375 bikes provided by bikesharing company, BCycle, are available at over 30 stations across the city. Riders can access the bikes via a $20 monthly pass that offers unlimited 30-minute rides, a $40 Annual Flex Pass for $1.75 per ride, or on a per use basis for $3.50 per 30-minute ride. Metro Bike Share first launched in downtown Los Angeles and also opened at the Port of L.A. in July 2017. Through this bikeshare program, Metro splits the cost of the bikes in order to encourage bike and transit travel.
