Bublr Bike Share Expansion

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) is expanding Bublr Bikes, the City’s nonprofit bike share, by 26 stations and approximately 250 bikes. DPW is working with community partners and residents to identify sites for expansion. The final station placement will be based on input from the community and will use best practices to ensure the success of the overall system. 

Public Open Houses

DPW held two Public Open Houses where residents learned about the expansion project and suggested station locations. Couldn't make it to a meeting? View meeting materials here
