Milwaukee (January 26, 2022) – Bublr, Milwaukee’s nonprofit bikeshare operator, is proud to announce that thanks to a generous grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Bublr will be able to expand and improve its adaptive bike program.

In 2019 Bublr launched a pilot adaptive bike program with support from the City of Milwaukee, the City of Wauwatosa, The Ability Center, and the Anthem Foundation. This program integrates upright tricycles, hand-cycles, and side-by-side tricycles into the Bublr system to ensure that people with different abilities can still access the Bublr System. Since launch, people have taken more than 600 trips on the adaptive bicycles.

This generous grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation will allow Bublr to repair some adaptive bikes that have been damaged during their years of service as well as purchase four additional bikes to add to the system.

Bublr is incredibly grateful and excited about this grant and the opportunity it represents to improve equitable access to physical activity in Milwaukee County!
