  • "Bikeshare"
    Bikeshare is a form of micromobility where riders can rent bikes on a short-term basis for point-to-point trips using a fleet of public or private bikes distributed throughout a community. The bikes can be docked (station-based) or dockless (free-floating).

Decisions to install public bike-share programs are increasingly based on ridership estimations, but the topography’s influence on ridership is rarely quantified. This research evaluated a geographic information system-based approach for estimating ridership that accounted for hills. Double-weighting a slope relative to other measures produces a realistic representation of the bicycling experience.

This report assesses the feasibility of a public use bike-share system for Seattle, Washington. Colloquially referred to as “bike-share” or “bike-sharing,” such systems are considered a form of public transportation. Bike-share bicycles are intended for short-term use and are accessible via automated check-out systems.
