2021 marks the 50th Celebration of Juneteenth in Milwaukee thanks to the Northcott Neighborhood House. Milwaukee has the longest-standing celebration “in the North” of the emancipation of all African American people formerly considered enslaved according to the US constitution. Just as the Constitution of the United States and its amendments are imperfect – the commitment to form a “more perfect union” is the essence of this country.

Bublr in its formation as a nonprofit was designed to bring people, and communities together. Biking is a mode of transportation like none other, designed to get riders to go further, and faster, than by foot. Not only do you see your surroundings and the communities you travel through along your way, but you hear, smell, and even taste them too when you stop for a bite or a drink at a local shop when traveling by bike. Biking is an immersive experience and helps riders to better understand their surroundings. The 26 additional Bublr stations, coming later this year, will be a major step forward to connecting the communities we serve in a “more perfect” way.

Bublr is committed to racial equity in everything we do from our Access Pass, to our workforce development program with Boys & Girls Club, DreamBikes and MATC, to co-locating over 80% of our stations with MCTS to our adaptive bikes and soon to be added ebikes. As a nonprofit, public/private partnership with the communities of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa & West Allis, Bublr welcomes all public feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our service and better serve ALL of Greater Milwaukee.

In honor of Juneteenth, Bublr is offering Free 30 minute rides to everyone who rides between 7 am & 7 pm on Saturday, June 19, 2021. (No promo code required.)
