While The Better Bike Share Partnership is not a name partner for this year’s conference, BBSP is still participating on the planning committee. The aim is to be a voice that helps integrate principles of equity into as many panels and presentations as possible.

Please note that BBSP and NABSA are offering scholarships of up to $500 to assist with housing and lodging costs. There is also a possibility for reduced registration fees. For more information, and to apply, see the conference homepage, and select the “Scholarships” tab.

BBSP looks forward to seeing bike share colleagues in attendance!

The Better Bike Share Partnership is funded by The JPB Foundation as a collaborative between the City of Philadelphia, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and the PeopleForBikes Foundation to build equitable and replicable bike share systems.
