Bike Sharing Schemes: Options, Suppliers and Implementation - 9 May 2018

A wide variety of bike sharing schemes have been implemented in the UK and abroad, which have been credited with greatly increasing cycle usage in many cities. Bike sharing is a growing and developing phenomenon, with options including docked and dockless and multiple operators competing in the market. It's a complex field, with a lot to consider when commissioning a scheme. This workshop will clarify the state of play in the field, showcase the range of options and suppliers and highlight best practice implementation.

The workshop will take place 10:00 to 12:00 in Birmingham hosted by Atkins, followed by a regional meeting in the same venue from 12:15 to 1:30 pm.


  1. Antonia Roberts of Carplus Bikeplus will provide an overview of the topic, with best practice examples of different types of schemes.
  2. A dockless and docked operator will explain their systems.
  3. Emma Beech of Transport for West Midlands will present on their recently-commissioned bike sharing system.
  4. Questions and discussion will then take place in small groups.

This workshop is free for Act TravelWise members sending one delegate. Non-members and additional delegates are charged at £50 + VAT.
