The Bikeshare Planning Guide



Over the past few years, bikeshare has contributed significantly to sustainable mobility in cities: providing first-last kilometer solutions, replacing short trips made by car, and offering a unique way for residents and visitors to explore their surroundings, among other benefits. As bikeshare continues to evolve with the integration of pedal assist e-bikes, dockless bikes, and multi-operator models, cities have to understand the opportunities and risks such innovations present as well as how to define success and measure system performance over time. 


As ITDP’s global Cycling Cities campaign works towards bringing safe cycling access to millions more people worldwide, accessible and high-quality bikeshare systems are crucial components for establishing cycling as a viable mode of urban transport.
