About NABSA


Mission: The North American Bikeshare Association (NABSA) connects the biggest minds in bikeshare and shared micromobility to support, promote and enhance shared alternatives to traditional transportation across North America. NABSA is the industry’s membership organization with representation from system owners, operators, host cities, equipment manufacturers and technology providers.

NABSA is a 501(c)3 organization, founded in 2014. NABSA provides resources and education and creates a space for the public, private and nonprofit sectors of shared micromobility to convene and empower each other.

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

As of summer 2020, NABSA represents 77 organizations, businesses, and cities in 6 countries. About half of NABSA members are for-profit businesses, 25% are non-profits, and 22% are government.
