In June, the City of Atlanta and Relay Bike Share launched a bike share pilot phase in downtown Atlanta with 100 bikes at 10 stations. The system is planned to expand by the end of 2016 to neighborhoods across the city, including Atlanta’s westside. That's why a team of city, bike share, and nonprofit organizations (Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, Relay Bike Share, City of Atlanta, WeCycle Atlanta, Urban Perform, and Red, Bike & Green Atlanta) created the Westside Bike Share Champions program!
This program will hire and train westside community members to conduct outreach for bike share. We're looking for about ten people who live (or have lived) in a westside Atlanta neighborhood to be enthusiastic champions for bike share in their neighborhoods. After the initial training, Champions will do 3-5 hours of outreach per week between October 2016 and May 2017, and receive a stipend, free bike share membership, and MARTA passes in return. Plus our team will coordinate professional development opportunities that go beyond this program. To find out more, visit atlantabike.org/bikechampionsapply.
