Motivate

Bike sharing has enjoyed explosive growth in cities across America, and much of that is due to Motivate, the parent company that operates the systems in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., and other cities across the country. Bike-sharing systems let urban residents cut down on their car use--without the hassles of owning a bike, which could include things like changing tires and fear of theft--and can revolutionize the transportation options in a city. Through its programs for low-income residents, the company also is helping democratize bike travel, making riding a bike as cheap as $5 a year for qualified residents in some cities. As it continues to roll out new stations and innovations--electric bikes are coming to San Francisco's system shortly, for instance--the company is helping support a new surge in cycling: Its users just took their 100 millionth ride on a Motivate bike.
