GO Pass Ambassadors

Overview: Houston BCycle is the city's nonprofit-run bike share system. With 109 stations and 700 bikes, BCycle is a quick, fun, healthy and sustainable way of getting around Houston. Riders can check out a bike from one station and return it to another, and BCycle members get unlimited short trips.

 

Houston BCycle and Change Happens! have partnered to launch a pilot program for an affordable membership option –– the GO Pass. The GO Pass is $3/month with cash payment available and allows you to pick up a bike at any station, ride for up to 90 minutes, and then drop that bike off at any station. Anyone over the age of 18 who self-reports an annual income of $35,000 or less is eligible for a GO Pass membership.

 

We are looking for five GO Pass Ambassadors to help us spread the word about the program in the Third Ward neighborhood! Free GO Pass membership and BCycle swag will be provided to all Ambassadors.

  • Leading at least two group bike rides per month (collaborating with other Ambassadors on rides is encouraged!)

  • Marketing group rides by passing out flyers, tapping into social media, and using other grassroots tactics.

  • Attending community and neighborhood meetings across the Greater Third Ward and making connections with local leaders to help drive more GO Pass signups.

  • Taking basic information of interested riders and ensuring that they know how to sign up for GO Pass memberships.

  • Checking in regularly with Houston BCycle and Change Happens! to report on rides and new signups.

  • Working at least twenty (20) hours per month on all of the above.

 

Job Requirements:

  • Must be over at least 18 years of age.

  • Must be either living, working, studying, or involved in Third Ward in another meaningful way.
