Investigating the Impact of Different Attributes on Bicycling Mode Share as A Multimodal Connectivity Strategy in Large Cities: A Case Study in Houston

Public bicycle share systems have increased from operating in a few European cities to expanding in the United States at an increasing pace. The proposed project is to investigating the impact of different attributes on bicycling mode share. For this purpose, this research will first identify the potential attributes related to bike sharing demand and model bike share station activity. Then, a method for analyzing and investigating the important factors on bicycle mode share will be developed/employed. Also, the considerations that may make the bicycle share more equitable will be studied in order to engage underserved communities in bicycle share.
