Partners

Corporate Partnership

WABA Corporate Partners are a wide range of businesses who share WABA’s vision of a connected region. Whether sponsoring WABA signature events, working with WABA’s expert staff to create educational content for customers, or adding their voice to regional advocacy initiatives, WABA Corporate Partners hold a deep belief that WABA’s advocacy, education, and outreach work strategically aligns with their brand’s goals for growth in the DC region.

Our Corporate Partners do not inform WABA’s advocacy work or programmatic approach; their contributions help WABA build a better connected region where more people bike for transportation, health, and the environment.

LaneSpotter is a mapping and navigation tool created for bicyclists, by bicyclists to make getting around by bicycle safer and easier. Founder Lynsie Campbell hails from a tech background and started LaneSpotter when she started to ride her bike with her son. Alone, she was a pretty confident bicyclist. But when she started to ride with her son, it totally changed the way she looked at biking—she started to focus more on safety. Specifically, on safe routes to get her everywhere her family needs to go.

LaneSpotter partnered with WABA to connect with the thousands of passionate bicyclists in the region to crowdsource information about which routes are the safest and most convenient. And, to ensure that bike routes keep getting safer and more abundant.


Uber is working with WABA on making streets safer for all users.

Uber is also working with WABA to better educate their drivers on driving methods that promote safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
