Off-Beat Bike Resources

OCTA BikeShare
BikeShare allows you to check out a bike for short commutes and errands—or for longer if you choose. For a nominal fee, you can check out, ride and return bikes from kiosks located in key areas in Fullerton; OCTA will expand this program in the next two years to 15 stations.

LA “Bike Trains”
People bike to work together in a group along a select route with a lead cyclist who serves as conductor to make bicycle commuting a more fun and trouble-free experience.

Metrolink Bike Cars
While bikes are allowed on all Metrolink trains, Bike Cars can hold 18 bikes and are identified by a yellow “Bike Car” decal on the side of the train or bike train wrap.
