Since 2014, six Motivate programs have been selected for Better Bike Share grants, which fund programs to increase equity and diversity in bike share. Motivate has participated in the creation of programs from Hubway’s Prescribe-A-Bike to Divvy’s Divvy for Everyone, to a unique and lauded program with Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration, the nation’s oldest community based development organization in Brooklyn, New York. Motivate works with Restoration to promote Citi Bike in a historically African American community, with a special focus on reaching lower income residents and people of color. Together we’re hired and trained local residents as Citi Bike ambassadors. We’ve trained Restoration’s workforce development staff to promote bike share as an efficient and affordable option for commuting. And Restoration is getting its large community partners to join Citi Bike as corporate members, providing subsidized memberships to their employees.
