Support Transportation Maintenance Efforts!

Buying cars and maintaining bikes can be daunting, but Madison has great community resources to help. 

For the summer: Down With Bikes, the winner of Sustain Dane’s Live Forward 2020 award, are a community mobile bike shop that provides free bike checks and affordable tune-ups, repairs, and 101 workshops to community members. Between April-September, they provide checks at the Madison East Side, Hilldale, and Monroe Street farmer’s markets. Community centers and schools can also apply to become #FreeBikeRepair locations.

For the winter: Mechanic Shop Femme, a local queer automotive educator and journalist, provides virtual classes, specifically aimed at women and LGBTQ+ community members, on car purchase and maintenance at a sliding scale fee. Her classes include topics like buying used cars and tire care, and she consistently donates 10% of her profits.

Why is this sustainable?

Being able to access (and advocate for) affordable repair services helps community members extend the life of their cars and bikes and prevent prohibitively expensive repairs/replacements later on. Well-maintained cars produce less air and noise pollution, and well-maintained bikes help prevent user injury.
