Thanks to a grant from the Anonymous Fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation residents of Milwaukee County Residents can get a free 30-day Bublr Bikes pass throughout the month of June.
You can also call or text (414) 931-1121.
The passes normally sell for $30.
You can use the pass for unlimited 60-minute trips on bikes checked out and returned to any station within the Bublr system.
The perfect way to get some exercise during the pandemic shutdown, Bublr Bikes can also help you run errands while leaving the car in the garage.
The folks at Bublr recommend using Bublr app bcycle.com/app to check out bikes – though you can also do it right at the docking station – as well as being safe by wearing a mask while riding, washing your hands as soon as you get to your destination and practicing social distancing.
