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 worked with community partners and residents to identify sites for expansion. The map below shows the final proposed station placement, which was based on input from the community and best practices to ensure the success of the overall system.
