Community Coalition

POGOH offers a public service in Pittsburgh for all, and we are dedicated to creating the most equitable and inclusive service that reflects the diversity of our city. As POGOH introduced and all-new hardware and software provider in 2022, including the introduction of e-assist bicycles, we gathered a diverse coalition of Pittsburgh leaders to help inform the launch, success, and community support of the new system. Bike Share Pittsburgh is dedicated to building the best bike share program for all of Pittsburgh, and to achieve this, we need more people in the conversation and decision-making process.

Who makes up the Coalition?

POGOH’s primary strategy for accomplishing an Equity-built bike share program is through a Community Coalition composed of:

  • City leadership
  • Community leaders
  • POGOH riders
  • BIPOC leaders
  • ADA representatives
  • Cyclists
  • Youth representatives
  • Seniors

These leaders serve as a committee to our Board of Directors and will not only serve on the Coalition, but will also ensure that the group includes other leaders and persons that will be integral to a diverse and inclusive Community Coalition.
