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.
- Conor Walsh of Carplus Bikeplus will provide an overview of the topic, with best practice examples of different types of schemes.
- Julian Scriven of nextbike UK Ltd and Duncan Robertson of Mobike UK, representing a docked and dockless operator, will explain their systems and provide an overview of options.
- Emma Beech of Transport for West Midlands will present on their recently-commissioned bike sharing system.
- 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.
