Metrolink Gets Wheel Social
Plus, if you snap a selfie of yourself on one of our trains with your bike and use #MetrolinkBikeMonth2023, you could even have the chance to be featured on our site.
May is when people all over the country celebrate Bike Month, which aims to inspire individuals to ride their bikes for various purposes such as fun, essential trips, exercise, and environmental conservation. Cycling, whether for transportation, recreation, or as a conscious lifestyle choice, offers numerous incredible benefits for individuals and the planet!
Metrolink supports initiatives like Bike Month to help protect our environment through clean transportation options while contributing to a healthier Southern California.
Taking your bike on board Metrolink is easier than ever. Just place your bicycle in the designated bike area on ALL our train cars. Each train car can hold up to 3 bikes.
