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.

  • BIPOC leaders
  • ADA representatives

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.
