Metro introduces new electric bikes to its fleet

You see the scooters everywhere, but now it's time for the bicycles. Metro's electric bike share is getting ready to hit the roads.

Metro and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation are introducing its new bike share expansion.

More than 300 electric bikes are getting added to the fleet, plus more than 20 new stations will be installed.

These bikes will get an extended 30 mile range on a full charge, meaning you'll be getting around farther with less effort.

The new expansion is available in the central Los Angeles area.

California bill to cap rent increases advances

Heads up for California renters concerned about the high cost of keeping a roof over their heads.

Sacramento lawmakers have agreed to cap annual rent increases statewide at seven percent, plus inflation.

The cap would also be in effect for three years.

Nine and a half million renters - more than half of California's tenant population - have been dealing with high rents and they spend at least 30 percent of their income on housing costs.

The Assembly passed the bill and it now heads to the state's Senate.
