May is National Bike Month, and Metrolink wants to make it easy for you to take your bike to work, school, the trails or wherever you go. Every Metrolink car can hold up to three bikes, and special Bike Cars are designed to hold up to eighteen bikes. This makes it very easy for you to grab your bike and go.
Metrolink will offer free rides on Bike to Work day, May 16, 2013, to anyone who brings a bike onboard Metrolink. This offer will be effective on all Metrolink trains in operation May 16, 2013. Riders must accompany their bike for the entire trip. Free ride offer is limited to one person per bike.
