Over the past six months baby blue bikes have been popping up all over Chicago. As a driver, they’re a bit scary because many of the riders seem unsure of themselves on two wheels, but it’s an overall good thing for the city. The bikes are part of the Divvy Bikes bike sharing system. The program seems to be a huge success so far, and I’m hearing the same thing about similar programs in other cities. The company behind Divvy, CitiBike, Bay Area BikeShare, Capital Bikeshare, and quite a few others is Alta Bicycle Share. They are based in Portland, OR and have offices in San Francisco, Columbus, Chicago, Brooklyn, Chattanooga, Boston, Washington, DC, and Melbourne, Australia. They’ve been able to launch programs in such major cities because they ” provide solutions for all aspects of bike share, from location assessment and business modeling to system maintenance and expansion.”
Alta Bicycle Share came out of a company called Alta Planning + Design that “is North America’s leading multi-modal transportation firm that specializes in the planning, design and implementation of bicycle, pedestrian, greenway, park and trail corridors and systems.” There’s also another related business called Public Bike System Company. They’re all somehow interconnected, but it gets a bit confusing. My guess is that they’re structured in a way that makes it easier to do work with municipal governments. If that makes your head hurt, go find one of Alta Bicycle Share programs (hopefully they have one in your city) and take a ride. You’ll instantly understand why cities are aggressively pushing bike sharing programs. If you’d like to be part of the growth in this space, take a look at Alta Bicycle Share’s Careers page. There are a number of opportunities across a variety of locations that could be a good fit for a new or recent grad. You may also want to check out Alta Planning + Design’s Careers page.
