GoMonrovia Program Powered by LyftGoMonrovia Logo

Lyft Shared rides cost $1.00 per ride and Lyft Classic rides will cost $3.50 per ride anywhere within our service area. If you're traveling to or from Old Town Monrovia or the Monrovia Gold Line Station, you're in luck! Shared rides to / from these locations will remain just $0.50 per ride. Apply the "GoMonrovia" promo code to your Lyft account today, and start riding with us! For more information, please visit the GoMonrovia page.

Lime will no longer be operating their bikeshare program.  As Lime is intending to focus solely on their scooter business, they will no longer be providing pedal-bike services.

To that end, anyone who has a remaining balance in their Lime account will be able to request a refund of their monies through Lime customer service.

Monrovia Transit (Dial-a-Ride) Service for ADA Passengers

The City also operates Monrovia Transit to help serve those passengers with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) needs. Those passengers that require ADA assistance must complete a short application to register in advance for these services. 

You may complete the application here. Be sure to include a copy of any back-up documentation showing disability eligibility, sign the waiver, and return both to the Community Center (119 W. Palm Avenue).

Questions? Contact the Community Center at (626) 256-8234.
