Reimagining Transportation in Cities
Innovation is at the heart of our mission to help transform cities with healthier and smarter transportation. For over a decade, PBSC has been focused on creating and improving micro-mobility solutions to bring bike share to cities around the world. Our purpose is to create a multimodal micromobility that is more fun, efficient, sustainable, and accessible than what’s been seen before. We want people to be happy and active by using our bikes, and we want cities to capitalize on this enthusiasm by providing our services to address a growing need for environmentally sustainable transport.
Cycling provides smart cities with far-reaching positive social, economic and health impacts that can benefit the individual as much as the whole. We count numerous partners in every corner of the world, dedicated to carrying the message of active movement to new cities every day. Cities like Barcelona, London, Montreal, Dubai, Brasilia, Washington, and so many others, are adopting micro-mobility and bike-share programs as part of their transport infrastructure.
Indeed, PBSC is already established in more than 40 cities across the world and has more than 95,000 bikes and e-bikes rolling on city streets. Our bike share programs have reached 500 million rides across our cities - and we are only getting started. Our international team includes over 100 in-house micro-mobility experts with knowledge in every area and an expansive ecosystem of manufacturers, designers, mobility operators and non-profit organizations. When it comes to changing the world, we work together as OneTeam.
At PBSC, we innovate and implement the micro-mobility solutions that are required to get us moving in the right direction. We want to help people reimagine transportation in their cities, to move away from what’s worked in the past and embrace a new way of seeing urban movement.
Tomorrow’s World Starts Today.
