Los Angeles residents and visitors can now rent one of 1,000 bikes at dozens of locations as part of the city's bike share program, which launched Thursday.
Right now, riders can use a registered Metro TAP card, $20 a month bike share pass or $40 annual pass to utilize the service. Starting Aug. 1, people will be able to rent bikes at $3.50 for every 30 minutes, NBC4's media partner KPCC reported.
City and metro officials hope the new system will attract low-income transit riders who can bike on their daily commutes.
