Bublr continues its tradition of offering FREE 30-Minute rides all day on election day.

With 84 stations and over 700 bikes located around Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and West Allis, Bublr Bikes is offering anyone free, convenient 30-minute rides on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, to encourage voting.

“Bublr is a big believer in civic participation and engagement,” said James Davies, Bublr’s Executive Director. “We believe that it’s important for us to do what we can to help lower barriers to voting.”

No code is needed to enjoy a free 30-minute ride on Election day. A free ride ends when the Bublr is returned to a Bublr Bikes station. Individual rides over 30 minutes will cost $3 for each additional 30 minutes.

While users won’t be charged Tuesday for rides 30 minutes and under; a credit or debit card is required to check out a Bublr Bike and a $10 hold is placed the first time you check out a bike.

Voters can find their voting location at myvote.wi.gov and a map of Bublr Stations and polling locations at bit.ly/BikeTheVote.

Bublr also offered free rides during the April 5th, Election Day.

Since the summer of 2014, Bublr Bikes, a Milwaukee-based non-profit, has launched 84 bike share stations in the Cities of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and West Allis. The City of Milwaukee will be expanding the bikeshare network by 26 stations, and 250 bikes in the spring of 2021 through a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant. The Bublr Bikes system is a public-private partnership between the Cities of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, West Allis, and Bublr Bikes, with additional support from many other public and private partners.
