This national partnership works to increase access to and use of shared micromobility systems in low-income and BIPOC communities.
The Better Bike Share Partnership (BBSP) is a collaboration between the City of Philadelphia, the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and PeopleForBikes, created with the goal of increasing access to and use of shared micromobility in low-income and communities of color. BBSP identifies barriers to access, partners with communities to develop and disseminate strategies to address those barriers, collects data to assess change, institutionalizes successful models and best practices, and shares its learnings widely.
Build shared micromobility systems that are accessible to everyone in the community.
