Learn about all the ways that Bublr Bikes is involved with the community through outreach programs, workforce development, and accesibility options. This is where Bublr Bikes puts their mission of a sustainable bikeshare system FOR ALL into action!



Bublr’s workforce development program is a career and employment initiative for young adults aged 14 to 21. Known as B3, this 6-month program is conducted in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee and DreamBikes. It aims to provide Milwaukee-area youth with valuable work experience and certification as bike mechanics.


During the first phase, young adults spend eight weeks in the B&GC Bike Program at the Mary Ryan Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee in Sherman Park. They learn basic bike repair skills and are introduced to the full six-month program. At the end of this phase, students receive a bike they have rebuilt. Successful completion qualifies them for the next phase at DreamBikes.

PHASE 2 - DreamBikes

During the eight weeks at DreamBikes, students gain exposure to a retail environment. They expand their bike repair skills across a wider range and develop soft skills through customer interactions. Completion of this phase prepares them for the final phase at Bublr.

PHASE 3 - Bublr Bikes

At Bublr, students specialize in maintaining bikeshare bikes, learn about system balancing, and enhance their customer service skills. The phase concludes with a written exam. Graduates receive a certificate recognized by BCycle, the bikeshare supplier for 43 U.S. cities including Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis. Over 70 students have graduated from the program to date.

Bublr Bikes hosts Savvy Cycling classes in collaboration with community partners throughout our network. These classes are designed to remove informational barriers and make it easier for everyone to access the Bublr System.

  • Tips for riding safely in the city

Bublr staff will guide you through:

  • Using hand signals and understanding how to ride safely with traffic.
  • Checking out a bike from the station using the kiosk, a fob, and the BCycle app.
After the classroom session, we'll head outside for a bike ride to practice and test your new skills.

Classes are approximately 90 minutes long and are completely FREE to attend. Participants will receive a bicycle helmet, stickers, Savvy Cycling shirt, and a free 30-Day Bublr Pass.

Adaptive Bike Program

Providing adaptive equipment is a vital aspect of Bublr’s mission to create a sustainable and inclusive bike share system for all.

In 2018, the City of Milwaukee convened a workgroup to determine the most effective adaptive bike components to serve our community. Over eight meetings, the workgroup facilitated discussions and gathered input from numerous community members and advocacy organizations. The consensus was clear: accessible bikes should be seamlessly integrated into the system with minimal differences from standard bikes.

In 2019, Bublr launched its adaptive bike program with strong support from the City of Milwaukee, the City of Wauwatosa, the Ability Center, and the Anthem Foundation. The program introduced upright tricycles, hand-cycles, and side-by-side tricycles to the Bublr system. In 2022, grants from the Astor Street Foundation and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation enabled Bublr to expand and enhance its adaptive fleet.

The Bublr team remains committed to ensuring that adaptive bikes are readily available at Hart Park, Estabrook Park, and South Shore Park, ensuring accessibility across our network.

Want to know where adaptive bikes currently are? Want to have one locked down for you? You can call or text Bublr Bikes at 414-931-1121.



Transportation accounts for nearly 30% of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. Addressing climate change requires tackling these emissions. A 2019 study by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy found that including robust bicycling options in sustainable transportation plans can cut emissions by an additional 11%. Bikeshares, like Bublr in Milwaukee, is crucial for achieving this reduction.

Since 2014, Bublr has cut over 817 tons of CO2 emissions and serves as a link to public transit systems like MCTS and The Hop. This connectivity multiplies its environmental impact. With 80% of Bublr stations near MCTS stops and 60% near streetcar stops, plus a station at Milwaukee's Intermodal station, Bublr facilitates seamless multimodal journeys. Introducing e-assist bikes enhances this synergy, expanding access to jobs without increasing commute times.

Bublr also reduces the barrier to cycling by offering affordable memberships. For less than $600, users get bikes that are reliable, weather-ready, and suitable for urban terrain—a much cheaper alternative to cars or purchasing a bike outright. Membership options, including free access for income-qualified riders and discounted rates for students, promote accessibility.

Moreover, Bublr drives investment in bicycle infrastructure, fostering safer and more appealing cycling environments. This encourages more people to cycle, especially those concerned about safety. As people gain confidence on Bublr bikes, they may transition to cycling in other settings or advocate for improved biking infrastructure.
