This role involves aiding individuals in recognizing safe riding spaces within their community, ultimately inspiring and encouraging them to utilize Indego for their rides. Community Ambassadors will also share information on how to sign up for an Indego pass and the various pass options, in addition to Indego’s expansion and how communities can be a part of the process.
