APBP Bikeshare Transit Webinar Series
#1, Introduction to Bikeshare Transit Systems
Wednesday, December 4 | 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. ET (90 minutes)

READ THIS BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH REGISTRATION: This is the registration page only for this individual webinar in the Bikeshare Transit series. If you want to purchase the whole series of four (and get the discounted price), click here.

Bike share programs are transforming public transportation in cities of all sizes. In 2013 the total size of bike share systems in the United States more than doubled with launches in major cities (New York, Chicago and San Francisco among them) and continued expansions in existing systems. Cities increasingly recognize bicycle sharing as an essential piece of their overall transportation systems, for reasons of mobility, livability and economic competitiveness.

Join APBP for a 4-part webinar series that explores the rapidly evolving domain of bike sharing as bicycle transit in the larger context of transportation planning. Each session features case studies and perspectives from professionals in cities with a wide range of experience in bicycle sharing operations and business models. Sessions are 90 minutes and take place on Wednesdays, December 2013 through March 2014, beginning at 3pm Eastern time.You may choose to register for the whole series of four or for one or more of the individual sessions. This is the registration page for the first session.

The introductory session provides an overview of the current state of the industry of bike sharing, including the basic types of systems in place at the end of 2013, business and operational models, and scale of implementation. Participants will gain an understanding of bicycle sharing as a form of ‘personal’ public transit and how local agencies are working to integrate these systems into long range transportation plans. Individual presenters will describe:

· An overview of current bicycle sharing system hardware, operations and user characteristics in North America, based on ongoing research being conducted by the Mineta Transportation Institute;

· Preliminary results from recent survey data spanning several bike share systems on trip purpose and impacts of bike sharing on other modes;

· A detailed case study of the Capital Bikeshare system in Arlington County, Virginia, which launched in 2010 as a regional system with Washington D.C. and is now one of the longest running current generation bike share systems.

· The Arlington Bike Share Transit Development Plan, which conducted a comprehensive review of the Capital Bikeshare program in Arlington and plans for service expansion to 2018 as part of overall transportation program funding
