Press release from LADOT
The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) together with other transportation agencies will celebrate Bike to Work Day this year on Thursday, May 16, 2019. To encourage this fun and healthy method of commuting, LADOT will again offer free rides to people on bikes who use DASH and Commuter Express bus service, and the newly launched LAnow on-demand shared-ride service on that day. Any rider who either brings a bicycle or wears a bicycle helmet will be given a free ride on these transit services. To access free LAnow rides, riders need to use the special code BIKELANOW when booking their trips.
“Two wheels are better than four on Bike to Work Day when you can test ride some of the 1,172 total miles of bikeways in the City of Los Angeles,” said LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds. “If you need an assist from LADOT transit, it’s free on Bike to Work Day for people on bikes, as our show of thanks for choosing to ride.”
LADOT Transit recently announced the largest services expansion in the history of the City of Los Angeles that adds evening service until 9 p.m. on all DASH Downtown routes. It also added weekend service on all DASH routes operating within 27 communities in the City, introduced two new routes to the popular Commuter Express services, implemented LAnow, an on-demand shared-ride service on the Westside, and increased benefits to Cityride participants.
