NABSA Hosts Webinar Discussing Advocating for Bikeshare and Shared Micromobility Infrastructure

On Tuesday, May 19, representatives from member organizations came together to discuss their various approaches to advocating for investment in bikeshare and shared micromobility infrastructure.

We all know that having a safe place to ride is key to getting more people out of cars and onto bikes, e-bikes, and e-scooters. How can we, in the bikeshare and shared micromobility industry, help make safe infrastructure a priority in our cities? We heard from the City of Memphis and San Francisco Transportation Municipal Transportation Agency on how bikeshare and shared micromobility in those communities have helped inform and make the case for safe street infrastructure development. We heard how Healthy Ride is not only a bikeshare operator, but how they are also doing grassroots advocacy to help build out the bikeway network in Pittsburgh. Finally, People for Bikes talked about grassroots activism and advised us about ways to be local advocates in our own communities.

The discussion touched on how some cities are incorporating slow or closed streets into their COVID-19 response, providing expanded, safe spaces for socially distant pedestrian and shared micromobility transportation. We received tips for how shared micromobility operators can join in advocating for improved infrastructure and discussed community engagement’s role in infrastructure advocacy.
