Bikesharing & Transit

Bike Sharing has quickly emerged as a cost-effective and sustainable strategy to bolster public transportation and get more Americans biking in our cities and towns. Bikesharing is a network of bicycles and stations, where a member or renter can check out a bike from a station, and return it to any other station within a network. These systems, when planned appropriately, can complement and enhance transit by offering patrons an option for quick and reliable one-way trips to and from stations.

In coordination with the National Bike Summit, FTA along with APTA, NACTO, FHWA, and other key stakeholders hosted a 2-day bikesharing workshop on March 22nd and 23rd to begin to document best practices, research gaps, and success stories for the industry. Please see the final agenda for full details, industry contacts, and more: Bike Share Workshop Agenda
