Yesterday at noon, the City of West Hollywood officially launched WeHo Pedals, the fourth bike-share system in the region operated by CycleHop. WeHo Pedals has 150 bicycles at seventeen stations throughout West Hollywood with rates ranging from $7 an hour to a yearly pass at $99. There is currently a discount for the yearly pass, $69 until September 6. For more information, visit the official website.

“We are so excited to offer bike-share to the West Hollywood community as well as to visitors,” said West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister in a press statement.

“WeHo Pedals will be a fun and easy way to explore our city, to run quick errands, or to grab a bite without having to get in the car. And, with WeHo Pedals, you won’t have to worry about finding a parking spot once you reach your destination.”

Yesterday’s launch followed a “soft launch” of four stations earlier this month.

WeHo Pedals is operated by CycleHop, the same vendor that runs systems in Santa Monica (including Venice stations coming this month), Long Beach, Beverly Hills, and, coming soon, UCLA.

The bikes are “smart bikes” meaning that the electronics are located on the bike itself, not the dock. Bikes can be locked up at designated docks, or at other locations within the service area. The system coverage area overlaps with neighboring Beverly Hills, so cyclists can pick up a bike in WeHo and leave it in Beverly Hills.

Yesterday’s launch was extensively covered by the local media. Read more on the launch at WeHoVille, ABC7, and KPCC.
