Bike Share Pittsburgh Experience

Bike Share Pittsburgh has a shared open office space located near the Doughboy statue on Penn Avenue in the Strip District. We have a mix of folks working remotely, in-person, or hybrid schedules depending on job requirements. Our staff is small, so each role at Bike Share Pittsburgh requires focus, hard work, and (most importantly!) teamwork to provide our customers with a joyful experience riding bikes. We all take pride in POGOH. In our downtime, we ride bikes and spend time supporting others in our community.
