About NABSA


Mission: The North American Bikeshare & Scootershare Association (NABSA) collaborates across sectors to grow shared micromobility and its benefits to communities, creating a more equitable and sustainable transportation ecosystem.

NABSA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources, education, and advocacy for the shared micromobility industry, and to creating spaces for the industry’s public, private, and nonprofit sectors to convene and empower each other.

In December 2018, NABSA widened its scope to include all shared micromobility devices. If it fits in a bike lane, it fits in the North American Bikeshare & Scootershare Association.

As of fall 2021, NABSA represents 72 organizations, businesses, and cities in 6 countries. About half of NABSA members are for-profit businesses, 25% are non-profits, and 28% are government.
