Getting around town while moving naturally will be easier and more fun in 2020. Blue Zones Project, the well-being improvement initiative, is partnering with Fort Worth Bike Sharing to provide free BCycle rides on the first Friday of every month throughout the year.
Called “Free First Fri-Yay,” the program offers a free Bike Sharing Day Pass with promotion code 92020 at any Bike Sharing kiosk. Users of the BCycle app can enter promo code 92020APP to get the free pass.
Free First Fri-Yay dates in 2020 are:
“We’re excited to partner with Blue Zones Project to enable more residents to experience Fort Worth on a BCycle,” said Jennifer Grissom, executive director of Fort Worth Bike Sharing. “Not only is it a fun and convenient way to get around town, but it supports natural movement, social interaction and family time – Blue Zones principles known for supporting health and well-being.”
To launch Free First Fri-Yay, Fort Worth residents are invited to a free family-friendly ride from 2-4 p.m. Jan. 3, the first Friday of the year. The ride will start at Gateway Park East Trailhead (5400 E. First St.), site of Fort Worth Bike Sharing’s newest BCycle station, and make a five-mile loop through the park. A two-mile route will be available for those opting for a shorter ride.
Blue Zones Project will be there with additional games and goodies for all ages. Riders can bring their own bikes or reserve a free BCycle by registering online.
Helmets are strongly suggested. A limited supply of helmets will be available for use. It is recommended that children be 5 feet tall to sufficiently ride a BCycle. The event will be held, weather permitting - double check on the Fort Worth Blue Zones Project and Fort Worth Bike Sharing Facebook pages before heading out.
Precinct 2 Community Partner Census 2020 Meeting
2020 is a big year – it is the census year and the 2020 census is fast approaching! Given that state leadership failed to appropriate any money to this once in a decade opportunity to count all Texans, the work we do at the local level is that much more impactful. A complete and accurate count is about billions of federal dollars, fair representation and redistricting. We are doing all that we can, including hosting a Community Partner Census 2020 Meeting.
When: Thursday, February 20, 2020
11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (lunch will be provided so be sure to RSVP)
Precinct 2 Maintenance Facility -- 1203 E. Kennedale Pkwy, Kennedale, TX 76060

Experience the leading shared mobillity summit at a new location!Mobility for all is coming. On March 17, 2019, the Shared-Use Mobility Center will convene the 2020 National Shared Mobility Summit. This three-day meeting is where innovators and advocates across the public and private sectors find new ideas to support equitable, accessible, affordable and clean mobility for everyone.
Here is a taste of what’s in store. More information and a link to early bird registration are coming soon. In the meantime, get ready for:
The pre-summit is the summit with roll-up-your-sleeves workshops with leading organizations that cover pressing topics, such as policy, partnerships, economics, equity, and operational models. That night, we’ll meet and mingle at the opening reception.
The first day of the summit features game-changing plenary speeches, focused sessions, interactive workshops and a very special grand reception. We kick off the Startup Spotlight and take the Shared Mobility Expo out of the boardroom, into the conference center and onto the street. We’re bringing in new experiences from food to logistics to content.
On day two, the plenary panels, sessions, and workshops continue. We will have summit itineraries for a range of audiences, from transportation leaders to community activists. These will be rounded out by on and offsite experiences, walking tours, and cultural activities that’ll give you a new perspective on mobility. We’ll announce the Startup Spotlight Winner and celebrate the end of the summit and the beginning of putting the summit into action.
And then there’s Chicago’s favorite St. Patrick’s Day tradition:
