CEDARBURG, WI. In August, APBP Adds Bike Share System Workshop; Announces Call for Instructors
The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) announces the opportunity for APBP members to join the instructor corps for APBP’s new Bike Share System workshop.
Two instructors are needed to present each workshop. One instructor offers a big-picture perspective on bike share (policy/funding/planning). The other instructor will offers hands-on experience with the operational side of bike share. APBP plans to conduct the first instructor training in Chicago in December, 2013.
APBP’s Bike Share System workshop encompasses the wide range of issues that communities considering or expanding bike share face. Issues include planning, policies, funding, equipment, technology, operations, maintenance, sustainability, partners, data management, location, system-wide demand and rebalancing issues, safety, security, education, weather, topography, demographics and political climate.
Instructor qualifications include: recognized expert in the planning, development, and implementation of bike share systems; experience working with government and transit agencies, business improvement districts, employment centers and developers to make bike sharing functional, attractive and responsive to community needs; engaging, interactive teaching style; and commitment to present at least two workshops a year.
