In cities throughout North America, new public bikesharing systems are being introduced as a new travel option.  Besides their value in making bicycling more accessible as a mode of transportation, bikesharing is particularly promising as a first-mile/ last-mile complement to new and existing public transportation systems.  View the recording of this 75-minute webinar held on March 14th provided an overview of some of the key factors that agencies thinking of operating a bikesharing system should consider, such as business models, system planning, and operations.  Speakers also highlighted case studies and provide some recommendations for integrating a bikesharing system with transit.

Speakers:

  •  What Makes Bikesharing Successful: Lessons Learned – Susan A. Shaheen, Ph.D., Co-Director, Transportation Sustainability Research Center at UC – Berkeley (Copy of slides)
  • Transit With Bikesharing: Overview of Practice and Potential – Darren Buck, FTA Office of Research, Demonstration, and Innovation (on detail) (Copy of slides of Darren Buck’s presentation)

 

The webinar was hosted by National Center for Transit Research, in partnership with Federal Transit Administration, Federal Highway Administration, National Bus Rapid Transit Institute, National Association of City Transportation Officials, and the American Public Transportation Association.

  1. Possible incorrect link on recording of article for “Integrating Bikesharing with Public Transportation”. The article linked from the email (http://www.nctr.usf.edu/2012/03/integrating-bikesharing-transit-webinar/) has a link labeled “view the recording” with is actually a proprietary link through Outlook Web Access (https://legacy.usf.edu/OWA/redir.aspx?C=e778b0fd3d2b4aa38338f8e9bebc1e95&URL=https%3a%2f%2fwww.livemeeting.com%2fcc%2fcutr%2fview%3fid%3dbikeshare%252Btransit). I’ve pulled the proper direct link from that which is:
