VeloCittà is a project using segmentation techniques and adoption of the most effective operational solutions to improve usage of Bicycle Share Systems

The ultimate benefit of VeloCittà is that it provides inspiration and builds capacity in local authorities and BSS stakeholders engaged with the design and implementation of effective and resource-efficient solutions able to boost the uptake of BSS’s, setting in motion a beneficial snowball effect on urban cycling as a whole. The project will see its results continued in the ‘Cycling Workspace’ long after the project has finished.

First the Olympics, then Seattle Transportation: Meet Nicole Freedman

As Mayor Ed Murray and the Seattle Department of Transportation Director, Scott Kubly, tout the $930 million Move Seattle transportation levy, their common refrain is, “we can’t build our way out of congestion.” But with no space to widen roads, Seattle has to figure out how to maximize what infrastructure and resources it has. Improving transit is critical, but much of the answer lies in increasing the number of people who walk or bike. In the name of just that, SDOT recently hired its first “Active Transportation Director,” Nicole Freedman, whose career already contains no shortage of bike-related victories. As Director of Boston Bikes – the city of Boston’s bike program that she helped to launch in 2007 – Freedman helped to build the city’s first bike lane network, double the number bicyclists, start the Hubway bike share system and transform what used to be one of America’s worst cities for biking, among other things.Oh, and she was an Olympian. As she wrapped up her second week at SDOT, I asked her a few questions.

CiViTAS Capital and Bike Share

Bike-sharing systems provide public access to bicycles for a limited time. Some provide free access to members and others charge a monthly or yearly fee. Some schemes operate stations across an entire city and others are intended for commuters. But they all have a common goal: improving the cycling culture in cities and encouraging people to cycle more. Read more here.
