BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

 

A Bike Share program has been in development in Culver City, with plans in place for service locations throughout the City. Coordination/partnership with LA Metro and their vendor(s) would be the most efficient method of providing such service.

 

In 2020, LA Metro decided to review their Bike Share program currently in effect. In addition to negotiating a new vendor contract, LA Metro wanted to consider changes in the bike share industry, Covid-19 impacts, and conduct other research.

 

Some of the primary goals of the system and its review are to:

                     Increase system density and expand geographically;

                     Grow ridership;

                     Ensure equitable access;

                     Reduce costs and maintain stability;

                     Allow for temporary scalability (i.e. Olympics); and

                     Integrate with Metro system.

 

Representatives from LA Metro will provide an update on the Metro Bike Share Program and present preliminary evaluation results. They will discuss options and describe next steps for new system implementation and coordination/partnership with Culver City.
