Free DASH rides for Metro 7-day or 30-day pass holders
As part of a new pilot program beginning Friday (July 1) and running through Dec. 31, Metro riders with a TAP card loaded with a seven-day or 30-day pass will be able to ride DASH for free.
The project is part of the California Climate Investments, which use proceeds from the state’s cap-and-trade auctions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide benefits to communities around the state.
The DASH system — run by the city of Los Angeles — is a great way to make first-and-last mile connections to Metro. Here’s a list of all the lines at the DASH website
Metro Bike Share is Here!
The Metro Bike Share has launched in Downtown Los Angeles! With up to 1000 self-service bikes and up to 65 stations available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, Metro Bike Share will offer convenient round-the-clock access to a fleet of bicycles for short trips and to get to transit on your schedule. Metro Bike Share will be an additional public transportation option for Angelenos and visitors to get around Downtown Angeles. It is fast, fun and affordable!
The Metro Bike Share station network will provide about twice as many bike parking spaces — or what we refer to as “dock points” — as there are bikes. This maximizes available bike share parking when you arrive at your destination station. You will be able to see real-time bike and dock availability on the app and online station map.
If you already have a Metro TAP card, you can register it and purchase a Monthly or Flex pass. If you don't have a TAP card, purchase a pass and you will receive a shiny new Metro Bike Share registered TAP card.

Bus Plaza Closure
On July 11, 2016 the Patsaouras Bus Plaza located at One Gateway Plaza/Union Station will close for construction until October 10, 2016 to undergo needed resurfacing repairs. During the closure, all buses and shuttles that currently enter the plaza will be moved to temporary bus stops. Private vehicles will enter the new Union Station East Passenger Pick-up/Drop-off Facility through either one of two entrances on Vignes Street, and will no longer enter the bus plaza.
