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.

Why do some bike-share systems succeed and others fail? The Bike-Sharing Planning Guide explains

  Hoy, más de 600 ciudades alrededor del mundo tienen sus propios sistemas de bicicletas públicas y cada año se inauguran más. Los sistemas más grandes se encuentran en China, en ciudades como Hangzhou y Shanghái. Los exitosos sistemas de París, Londres y Washington D.C. han ayudado en gran medida a promover el ciclismo como un sistema de transporte valioso y viable. Esta guía fue creada para reducir la división entre los países desarrollados y en vías de desarrollo en cuanto a las experiencias que se han tenido con el uso e implementación de las bicicletas públicas. Debería ser útil para ayudar a planear e implementar un sistema de bicicletas públicas, independientemente de su ubicación, su tamaño o la densidad de la ciudad. Read on here.

Bike-sharing pilot to start next year in Jurong East, Singapore

A tender will be called next week for an operator to run a bike-sharing pilot in Jurong Lake District, which will see 1,000 bicycles available for use across 100 docking stations 24 hours daily. Also to be launched is a six-month trial to allow cyclists and personal mobility device (PMD) users to carry their rides onto trains and buses at all times, instead of only during off-peak periods. Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan shared these plans during the inaugural Walk Cycle Ride SG Symposium on Wednesday (July 20) at the Mediacorp Campus. The projects are part of Singapore’s ongoing efforts to go “car-lite”. The bike-sharing pilot in Jurong Lake District, which will be launched next year, will allow commuters to pick up a bicycle from one of the self-service docking stations located near their homes and ride it to MRT stations, offices or malls, where they can leave the bicycle at a docking station.
