This session will provide expert advice on choosing the best bike share options for communties and campuses. Bike sharing options are being updated at an exciting pace — docked, dockless, e-bike and more. See firsthand what Washington, DC, itself is going through in the pilot program of multiple dockless bike sharing systems.

Suzanne Williams will talk about the LimeBike free flow dockless bikeshare in Greensboro, NC. The program launched in June of 2017 with 125 bikes at UNC Greensboro. Bikeshare quickly became the most popular sustainable transportation program on campus during the summer and was soon adopted by GDOT in a city wide expansion.

Waffiyyah Murray will be sharing best practices and lessons learned from her work in Philadelphia with Indego bike share. She’ll be highlighting the importance of community input during the site planning process, and the development of programs and initiatives to help make bikeshare an accessible, affordable and fun option for the community.

Charlie Denney was involved in the launch and operation of Capital Bikeshare. The introduction of dockless bikeshare systems has presented many opportunities and challenges in communities where they have arrived.  Planning for dock based systems has evolved, but these new systems present different considerations and options for how and where to contain the bikes within the public spaces.  This presentation will discuss different options, and their pros and cons, including examples from cities that are using the various types of systems.

Tim Alborg of bikeshare company Zagster/Pace Tim will discuss how cities are grappling with the issue of “lockless” dockless bike shares, with a focus on emerging regulations around the rapidly evolving bike share industry. He will also discuss the role thoughtful system design plays in maximizing ridership and equity.
