Bike Sharing has quickly emerged as a cost-effective and sustainable strategy to bolster public transportation and get more Americans biking in our cities and towns. Bikesharing is a network of bicycles and stations, where a member or renter can check out a bike from a station, and return it to any other station within a network. These systems, when planned appropriately, can complement and enhance transit by offering patrons an option for quick and reliable one-way trips to and from stations.
In coordination with the National Bike Summit, FTA along with APTA, NACTO, FHWA, and other key stakeholders hosted a 2-day bikesharing workshop on March 22nd and 23rd to begin to document best practices, research gaps, and success stories for the industry.
