Last week, North American Bikeshare Association and the Better Bike Share Partnership held a joint conference in Portland, Oregon: Moving Forward Together. Bike share groups, city planners, mobility justice advocates and transportation officials were among the conference attendees, where the week’s themes focused on how to design bikeshare programs to meet community needs (for all community members), how to mitigate racial profiling in bikeshare and how to engage community members who may not feel that bikeshare is for them. Speakers also addressed big questions: Should bikeshare systems be docked? How should rides be priced? How do you create marketing materials that are inclusive but don’t tokenize?

Here are some of the week’s highlights, as told from the Twittersphere:
