Without a doubt 2013 has been a banner year for bike share in the United States with large systems implemented in New York City (Citbike) & Chicago (Divvy) and many others debuting (or expanding their size) in cites big and small. In fact, Citibike now boasts over 10 million bike miles travelled and is inching closer to 100,000 members! Geek out and follow the progress at that link.
The Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) has been studying 25 bike shares throughout the world analyzing which ones succeed most and why. That's led to ITDP's Bike Share Planning Guide which has copious data and fascinating charts to pour over in order to help cities and systems continue to thrive and give plenty of advice to those planning bike shares of their own.
We were very happy to team up with ITDP to make this Streetfilm. It features footage of a dozen bike shares from around the world and represents an unprecedented amount of video in any one short film. Enjoy and download the report!
