Community Ambassador Program

POGOH's annual Community Ambassador Program connects diverse communities across Pittsburgh to biking in general and the bikeshare program in particular. The goal of the program is to build the most equitable and inclusive bikeshare program for Pittsburgh, support communities and organizations who are already doing awesome work, and create fun, engaging bike rides and events that offer low-barrier ways for people to get on bikes in their communities.

Ride, Connect, Inspire!

The goal of the Community Ambassador Program is to break down barriers to biking in BIPOC communities by offering bike safety education, promoting safe bicycling infrastructure, and encouraging community members to come out and ride together. 


The theme of this year’s 2024 Community Ambassador Program is ”Ride, Connect, Inspire” with a focus centered around education, cycling confidence, and youth in the community.  


Our team of Community Ambassadors is made up of non-profit groups who possess a passion for their community, and are willing to gain the skills necessary to educate community members on city bike infrastructure and riding safety in efforts to build the most equitable, accessible, and joyful bikeshare program for all city residents.

Community Ambassadors plan, recruit, and host community bike rides as well as attend and support community bike rides in collaboration with local schools or youth serving organizations. Community Ambassadors also plan, organize, and implement a Community Event at the end of Summer. 


Community Ambassadors serve as the POGOH voice for their community.
