NACTO has put out three “Practitioner’s papers”, which “ highlight best practices for cities aiming to address equity issues while introducing or expanding their bike share systems.” These include:
Walkable Station Spacing Is Key to Successful, Equitable Bike Share
Can Monthly Passes Improve Bike Share Equity?
High-Quality Bike Facilities Increase Ridership and Make Biking Safer
They are all big deals. Bike share stations need to be relatively close together or many people have to walk too far to get a bike; it has to be affordable and easy to buy a pass with cash. But most importantly, there has to be infrastructure where it is safe to ride. That is the big and expensive nut to crack.
