Metro Bike Share Rolls into North Hollywood on August 8!
Next week, Smart Metro Bikes are coming to North Hollywood. This latest expansion gives Metro riders an opportunity to explore and commute in one of LA's most historic neighborhoods, and further develops first and last mile access to Metro Bus and Metro Rail lines, including the Orange and Red Lines. Thirteen Smart Metro Bike Share stations will be on the ground in North Hollywood at launch, and more stations will be installed in the coming weeks, including at the North Hollywood Red Line Station.

Can’t unlock a bike from the app
Many steps involved—the app is really just a map, which is confusing. Makes you use a second app, and even that demands you log in to your TAP card. Even with a registered Tap card, still can’t get a bike — it insisted my registered Tap card wasn’t registered with Metro Bike, though there is no page to do that on. Bizarrely difficult, multi-app process that never even had a solution.
Map Needs Work
The map is very good at showing where the bikes are, types of Bikeshare bikes available and updates inventory quickly. However, why does the map show where all the freeways are but no bike lanes or routes? Big fail.
Wow. This is what our tax dollars are going towards? My parents are in town and we thought it would be great to use these bikes. After 30 frustrating minutes trying to understand how this app works, we decided to walk instead. As an app designer myself I’m amazed at how confusing it is to unlock a bike. It’s as if the Metro designers worked hard to make it especially difficult.
