The Better Bike Share Partnership, a collaboration funded by The JPB Foundation to build equitable and replicable bike share systems, has awarded more than $410,000 in grants to increase access to and use of bike share in low-income communities and to fund research related to bike share and equity. This is the third round of grant funding that PeopleForBikes will administer as part of the Partnership.
 
The following project received Challenge Grant funding in SC:
