The Los Angeles Metro launched Metro Micro, a zoned ride-hailing service for short trips, in the Westwood area Sunday.

Similar to other ride-hailing services like Uber, Metro Micro provides an on-demand ride through the Metro Micro app, online or by phone within 15 minutes, according to LA Metro. However, the Metro Micro program only provides rides to and from locations inside its specified service area.

The Westwood zone will be available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and will include the UCLA campus, North Village, Westwood Village, Veterans Affairs Medical Center and nearby areas such as Sawtelle and Brentwood Glen. The LA Metro also has Micro zones in seven other areas, including LAX/Inglewood, Northwest San Fernando Valley and North Hollywood/Burbank.
