Our Story

Blue Krewe, Who?!

Blue Krewe is a local community-based nonprofit that operates and manages Blue Bikes. Our team is dedicated to offering the Greater New Orleans region an equitable bikeshare program that is an affordable, fun, and convenient transportation option for all.  Here at Blue Krewe, we believe that expanding access to Blue Bikes will benefit the entire region by catalyzing economic growth, improving community health, and increasing the use of existing transit infrastructure.

Blue Krewe was created in 2020 by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, which provided critical start-up funding and fiscal sponsorship.  Our initial partners also included BikeEasy, Blue Cross Blue Shield Louisiana, and the City of New Orleans. 


The mission of Blue Krewe is to provide the Greater New Orleans region with equitable shared micro mobility solutions that are rooted in and supportive of our community.
