The Everyone Rides Initiative: Maintaining Equity in Bike Share Subsidization
In this workshop, I will outline how the Hamilton Everyone Rides Initiative subsidized Bike Share pass program (the first of its kind in Canada) began and is maintained. I will also focus on which challenges we are currently facing in our desire to sustain ourselves as a non profit, and our continuing quest for equity throughout all facets of our program; including partnerships with Indigenous communities, folks affected by precarious housing situations and gentrification, and those subjected to the Canadian carceral system. This presentation will be brief, with a hopeful discussion afterwards from participants who may suggest additional ways of maintaining and expanding a Bike Share equity program using anti-oppressive principles and practices.
