Bike share leader Motivate continues to revolutionize the landscape of cities, making them more accessible, healthier, and sustainableFirst-time honoree Motivate selected alongside Patagonia, Salesforce, and Starbucks

NEW YORK (February 20, 2018) – Today, Fast Company honored Motivate as one of the top ten most innovative companies in social good, as part of the magazine's annual Most Innovative Companies issue. Operating bike share systems across the nation, from New York to the Bay Area, Motivate continues to lead in making bike share a key component of the mobility solutions for modern cities.

In 2018, Motivate continues to develop its technology and operations to further cement itself as the leader in bike share. Motivate is working to expand its Bike Angels program, which incentivizes Citi Bike riders to use their people-power to help rebalance bikes across the system. Motivate also continues to develop new products, with the recent news that Motivate has been selected to transition the Minneapolis bike share system to a dockless network, and its plans to add pedal-assist ebikes to the Ford GoBike system in San Francisco.

"Through our best-in-class bike share operations, Motivate makes commutes shorter, neighborhoods closer, and biking easier. Our mission is to deliver solutions to create healthier, greener, and more accessible cities — and that's why I am so pleased that Fast Company has selected Motivate as one of the most innovative companies in social good. We look forward to delivering additional innovations to our cities and riders in 2018," said Jay Walder, President and CEO of Motivate.

"This year's Most Innovative Companies list is an inspiring and insightful window into how many companies have embraced innovation and are working to make meaningful change," said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky.

Fast Company's ranking of the world's 50 Most Innovative Companies for 2018 honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in business and innovation across various sectors. Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies issue (March-April 2018) is now available online at www.fastcompany.com/MIC, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning February 27.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
