Mobis aims to make bicycling and public transit easier alternatives to driving. The company—born from the nonprofit Bikestation two years ago and backed with $500,000 in angel investment—designs, builds, and manages bike transit centers. The stations, located near public transit hubs, offer secure parking for bicycles, as well as such other services as repairs, changing rooms, and storage lockers. Mobis has helped develop 14 Bikestations in the U.S.—mostly in California—and expects to install from 15 to 20 this year. Most clients are local governments and transit agencies, but real estate developers and corporate campuses are showing interest, including a commercial developer in Vancouver, says Chief Executive Officer Andréa White-Kjoss, 35. "The goal here is to get more people using alternative transportation," says White-Kjoss, helping reduce the environmental impact of driving and making it easier for people without cars to get around.
