About Bublr Bikes
Bublr Bikes is Milwaukee’s bike share program! With Bublr Bikes, you’re able to take a bike from one Bublr Station, enjoy a quick ride to wherever, and return the bike to any Bublr Station that’s nearby. It’s our goal to launch 100+ Bublr Stations in Milwaukee and the surrounding ‘burbs!
Bicycles are an accessible, convenient and integrated travel option for everyone.
Bublr Bikes delivers a sustainable, excellent bike share system for all.
Our Mission in Action
Develop an Inter-Municipal System of Large Scale
Bublr Bikes will install 100+ bike share stations in at least 4 municipalities – by 2018.
Ensure Station Density and Connection
Bublr Bikes will build a contiguous, inclusive network, expanding from central hubs into many neighborhoods. No Bublr Station will be more than 1/2 mile from another station. Bublr Stations will be installed in locations based on the recommendations of neighborhood stakeholders.
Communicate Effectively with Customers
Bublr Bikes will provide simple, easy-to-understand instructions for ALL of our potential riders – residents, visitors, employees, etc. Bublr will provide English and Spanish content to connect with a variety of people, and add other language options as the network expands.
Create an Accessible System
Bublr Bikes is committed to creating a bike share system that is accessible to as many people as possible. A ride starts at $3, and subsidized and discounted passes will be provided to income qualified individuals. Additionally, Bublr’s how-to videos are closed captioned, Bublr’s customer service line is equipped to receive text messages and the Bublr website is compatible with screen reading software. Bublr’s bikes are also designed to be ridable by as many people as possible, with low, step-through frames and upright seating.
Build Encouragement and Engagement Programs
Bublr Bikes will develop programs – including pass giveaways, safety education, and a Bublr mileage challenge – to encourage first-time riders to try Bublr. Bublr will customize programs to serve diverse audiences, recognizing the distinct barriers each audience may face when considering Bublr Bikes.
Be Visible, Active and Integrated
Bublr Bikes will engage with the city’s diverse neighborhoods and cyclist groups, relying on on-the-ground insight to build the Bublr network and user base. Bublr will reflect Milwaukee’s diverse population through board participation, volunteer efforts, and an ongoing bicycle mechanic internship for Milwaukee’s youth.
