Transit Access and Egress via Bicycle Sharing

The work will explore the benefits of designing bicycle-sharing programs to serve public mass transit. Given that bicycle speeds exceed those of walking, a transit system's ridership can increase by promoting bicycle travel to and from its stations. And bicycle sharing may reduce transit costs, especially if the bike-sharing and transit systems can be designed in joint fashion. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley will use continuum approximation models to design these systems for a pre-defined set of idealized scenarios. Researchers from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona will: (i) alter these idealized designs to suit real transit systems in California, (ii) estimate what would be the resulting added ridership for these real systems, and (iii) evaluate the altered designs using simulation. Finally, researchers at California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo will identify policies to promote the deployment of the ideas in real settings.
