Riding a Bike Share bike doesn’t require much planning, or a special outfit. When cities adopt bike share into their transportation network, they take a giant leap to make biking a normal, everyday activity for residents. That makes biking safer and cities healthier.
 

What's Bikemore's role in Bike share?

Bringing Bike Share to Baltimore has been a key Bikemore priority since our founding in 2012. Through ups and downs over the years, we’ve remained steadfast in our belief that a robust Bike Share system is critical to improving mobility and access to active transportation for Baltimore’s residents.

In 2015, Baltimore City was ready once again to move forward with securing a Bike Share vendor. Bikemore worked alongside the city from the very beginning. We provided two advocates who sat on the Technical Review Team to select the vendor, and served on the diverse Technical Advisory Committee which advises the city on key decisions such as pricing structure, station siting, and community outreach.

Bikemore remains a key partner involved in ensuring the success of Bike Share.
