Multicultural Communities for Mobility is excited to announce the launch of Metro’s bike share system in downtown Los Angeles on July 7, 2016. This summer, we look forward to this significant milestone in Los Angeles transportation and being part of a pilot project following this launch.
MCM has partnered with Metro, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition to launch a pilot project to engage, inform, and educate low-income community members about bike share with the goal of learning about their use of the system, their concerns, barriers, and interests related to biking. Thanks to our advocacy, L.A. now has the opportunity to make bike share work for ALL of our communities, by launching the first surveying and community engagement efforts targeted at low-income communities of color.
MCM will be hiring LA’s very first bike share community engagement and research team with part-time contractor roles by July, including an:
- (1) Active Transportation Project Coordinator
- (2) Community Engagement Specialists
- (2) Active Transportation Education Specialists
…and more to be announced.
We want culturally competent, bilingual (especially Spanish) people of color and/or LGBT folks to apply! Please share this announcement with friends, family, and your networks! Applications are due Friday, June 17, 2016.
Our bike share outreach work is supported by the Better Bike Share Partnership, a collaboration between the City of Philadelphia, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, PeopleForBikes Foundation and the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and funded by The JPB Foundation.
