Metro Bikes for Free for the Entire Month of May
About a year ago, our city joined the ranks of places like London and New York and Chattanooga and got a bike share—you know, those docking stations downtown that are filled with bikes you can rent for short periods of time.
Monthly passes typically cost $20, BUT because it is (apparently?) “Bike Month,” Metro is offering them for free. Here’s how to get one: Sign up online and use the promo code BIKEMONTH17 at checkout. You can choose to have a new bike share TAP card mailed to you, or you can add it to a Metro TAP card you already have.
Now, here’s the important part. Just because the pass is free doesn’t mean you get unlimited access to the bikes. All trips for 30 minutes or less (between when you check out a bike and when you dock it at another station) won’t cost you anything, but trips longer than that will cost $1.75 per half hour.
Also, note that after your first free month, you’ll be charged $20 for every month thereafter unless you switch off auto-renewing. To do that, login to your account on the Metro Bike website, and uncheck the auto-renewing button in the bottom right corner of the page.

Adopt a Fire Hydrant
In April, Canoga Park Neighborhood Council collaborated with Councilmember Bob Blumenfield’s Office, Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department, Home Depot, and Department of Water and Power, to hold the Adopt a Fire Hydrant – Become a Hero event. Over 230 volunteers spent their Saturday morning painting over 250 fire hydrants, making them easier to spot in the event of an emergency. This event brought the community together and provided individuals the opportunity to beautify and increase the safety of their neighborhood.
Be Part of the Los Angeles Welcome
This Saturday, please join the LA Department of Convention and Tourism Development in kicking off National Travel & Tourism Week by showing that the City of Los Angeles does welcome all visitors from everywhere! You may have seen the inspiring #EveryoneisWelcome video which is part of the global welcome initiative launched last week by our partners at the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board to promote LA as a welcoming destination.
We invite you to support the “Everyone is Welcome” initiative by volunteering to help create a large human welcome sign that celebrates the diversity and inclusivity that defines Los Angeles. This event will take place on Saturday, May 6 near LAX at the Carl Nielsen Park, 9100 Jenny Avenue, Los Angeles. Take part in sending a warm welcome to visitors around the world by volunteering for one of two shifts: 8:00am – 11:00am and 11:00am – 2:15pm. Bring your family and friends and enjoy food, refreshments, giveaways and free parking!
