NABSA emerged out of the need for collaboration and knowledge sharing within the young and rapidly growing bikeshare industry.

In the spring of 2014, a handful of industry stakeholders came together and formed NABSA as a 501(c)3 nonprofit to serve as the industry’s leading member-driven organization. NABSA hired its first Executive Director in June, 2017. Samantha Herr pushes NABSA to grow and challenge the industry with passion and vision.

Currently, NABSA has more than 70 members across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and outside North America from Germany, the UK, Israel and China — gaining new members every month.
