Friday Seminar: Bike Share Planning and Implementation

bay area bike share

It's a new school year and a new semester, which means the TRANSOC Friday Seminars are back! Kicking things off this week is Brett Hondorp, AICP from Alta Planning + Design / Alta Bicycle Share. He will be talking about bikeshare implementation and lessons learned in "Bike Share Planning and Implementation – Lessons learned from DC, Boston, New York, and the Bay Area".

This presentation will focus on three elements of bicycle sharing: 1.) Planning for bikeshare, using the recent Bay Area launch as an example, 2.) Ongoing system operations, drawing from our recent experience operating eight bikeshare systems globally, and 3.) User characteristics, relying on data from our long running Capital Bikeshare and Hubway systems.

The seminar will take place a 4:00-5:00 PM September 6, 2013 in 534 Davis Hall. This week is also the return of Cookie Hour in the library at 3:30. See you then!
