September 30: International Shared Micromobility Leaders to Convene in Indianapolis 

Starting September 30, leaders in mobility will reconvene for three days at the North American Bikeshare Association’s annual conference. The NABSA conference is the first of its kind, allowing bikeshare and shared micromobility professionals, including those working with scooters and other small, shared mobility vehicles, to get facetime, have fun and move the industry forward.

This year, NABSA brings its annual conference to Indianapolis where locals bike all over the place, including 80 miles of connected trails and greenways in and around the city. Just in time for the conference in September, Indianapolis’ bikeshare system Pacers Bikeshare will have doubled its size to 500 bikes and 50 stations.

NABSA will unite the biggest minds in bikeshare and shared micromobility to strategize the future of everyone’s daily commute, bringing extra attention to this year’s conference theme of micromobility. Last year, NABSA announced it will widen its scope to include shared micromobility devices such as scooters.

“Shared micromobility continues to be a growing trend that allows more people to get where they need to go. And if it fits in a bike lane, it fits in NABSA,” said NABSA Executive Director Sam Herr. “Our annual conference will allow mobility leaders to converge under the same roof to discuss the implementation, management and innovation of bikeshare, scooters and other shared micromobility devices.”

In addition to putting shared micromobility in the spotlight, NABSA’s annual conference will facilitate discussions around shared public right-of-way and public-private partnership, among others.

NABSA’s 2019 conference will take place on Monday, September 30 to Wednesday, October 2 in Indianapolis. To stay up to date on conference announcements and registration, click here.
