Taming and Tapping the Bike Share Explosion

The goal of this project is to improve system-wide efficiency for residents and visitors to the region by studying the legal framework, infrastructure needs, and consumer perceptions of bike share system (BSS). The research team will identify travel service gaps that BSS can alleviate. The team will produce guidance and tools (legal, business, and engineering) that cities, states, and other organizations can use to leverage BSS mobility. The team will pursue this study from a system-wide perspective to identify how BSS can complement other modes of transportation, such as ride-hailing services and public transportation, to effectively improve multimodal connections.
