  • 1. Cycling and Public Transport Integration <br />Implementing Bikes on Buses around Auckland<br />Regional Walking and Cycling Forum<br />17th March 2011<br />Matthew Ensormatthew.ensor@beca.com<br />Jonathan Slasonjonathan.slason@beca.com17 March 2011<br />
  • 2. BecaBus and Bike<br />Beca has the credibility – over seven years of researching - to guide the implementation the of Bikes on Buses <br />Cycle-PT Research: <br />NZ Research Report 418 published data on estimated demand and costs of system wide ‘bike on bus’ roll out.<br />Research included Bike and Ride, locker demand, and an extensive literature review. <br />The research provided a comprehensive review of Bike on Board and Bike and Ride programmes worldwide. <br />Bike and Ride (BaR): <br />This is where a cyclist uses a bike to reach the public transport facilities and <br />then parks the bike there <br />(parking on either end of trip)<br />Bike on Board (BoB): <br />This is where a cyclist uses a bike to reach the public transport facilities and then carries the bike onto the public transport service. <br />The bike can then be used at the latter end of the service to reach the final destination.<br />
  • 3. BecaBus and Bike<br />Bikes increase the net catchment per bus / rail / ferry stop. <br />
  • 4. BecaBus and Bike<br />
  • 5. BecaBus and Bike<br /><ul><li>Successful Cycle and Public Transport initiative must be well planned and executed
  • 6. Partial or trial approaches won’t work – and won’t capture the excitement necessary to create meaningful behaviour change.
  • 7. Risk is too great – use analytical approach to maximise efficiency
  • 8. The Cycle-PT Research combined an extensive literature review and exposure to international systems allows NZ the opportunity to learn from others –
  • 9. Take the best from worldwide examples to create a truly exciting and successful Cycle and Public Transport system in Auckland.</li></li></ul><li>Fully Integrated Bike on Bus System RolloutThe 4 E’s<br />Education<br />Environment<br />Encouragement<br />Engineering<br />Image source: CAN.org<br />Create an integratedsolution to develop the cycle and public transport link. <br />Requires the 4 E’s to realise the benefits of the investment. <br />

  • 11. Key to making Auckland the most liveable city in the world<br />EnvironmentCreate a liveable City<br />Bike bus tour: Basic InfoStreetfilms<br />Bike on Bus and Bike and Ride: Adopted around the world<br />Integrates into a Active and Healthy City<br />Harbour Bridge Crossing Option: Put the bike on the bus<br />World Class Transport<br />Active and Healthy City<br />Sustainable transport modes<br />Integration of other Regional Initiatives (regional cycle ways, rental cycle scheme)<br />Removal of Harbour Bridge Crossing Impediment<br />A complete bicycle and public transport integration in Auckland can produce a likely ridership of almost 700,000 combined cycling & transit trips annually. <br />Active & Healthy City Image source: Aucklandtrains.co.nz<br />
  • 12. EducationTraining<br />practice racks<br />Practice racks at busy stops as well as general education about the rack system.<br />The practice racks can reduce the fear and hesitation – for that first time that is always a bit scary<br />left: Example here is a travelling practice rack.below: bike rack on bus tour <br />Travelling bus bike rack<br />Source: Philly, PA, USA.

  • 13. EducationPopular Training and ‘cool factor’ <br />Internet video<br />Seattle General User Introduction to Bike Bus Rack Videovideo:<br />mms://winmedia.kingcounty.gov/transit/metrobikeracks.wmv<br />Video with lots of examples of people loading and unloading their bicycles from the bus racks. Provides clear and easy to understand directions for users. <br />Example videos on public education on the concept of putting your bike on the busWill need a NZ specific version!<br />Bike Rap Video: Louisville <br />Encouragement and Educationvideo:<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoFFg0W9UME<br />Rappers and bus drivers dance with a catchy tune advertising and educating people on the new bus racks. Highlights the benefits of the bike and transit combination.<br />
  • 14. EngineeringQuality Equipment<br />Sportworks is the manufacturer for the Christchurch bike on bus trial<br />Discuss methods for cost reduction – potentially local production<br />http://www.sportworks.com/bike-racks-for-buses.aspx<br />Sportworks Product Video<br />http://www.sportworks.com/bus-racks/video.aspx<br />
  • 15. EngineeringRemove the Barriers<br />‘Bike on Bus’ need safe and efficient cycle access to bus ways<br />Example:<br />No dedicated cycle facilities to the Constellation Stationfrom adjacent community<br />This reduces the net demand for the cycle facilities. <br />Without improved access to bus and rail facilities the bike on board may not realise the full demand potential.<br />http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/PED_BIKE/univcourse/pdf/swless09.pdf<br />
  • 16. EngineeringLocker supply and management<br />Craft a business or organisation model which can manage the bicycle racks and bicycle lockers<br />The lockers will become a pivotal part of a integrated Cycle-PT system. Especially on high volume PT routes such as the Northern Busway<br />Incentives to use lockers can increase locker utilisation and PT patronage<br />Technology, good positioning, marketing and partnerships can enable a successful locker system<br />Left top: Northern bus way locker. $2 deposit and return system. (ARTA website)<br />Right top: Wellington bike lockers (CAN website)<br />Left bottom: Bike Link is a technology driven locker system used along the CalTrain (and elsewhere) system. <br />
  • 17. EngineeringFixing the Constraints<br />Route Audit for Bike on Bus and Bike and Ride systems <br /><ul><li>Bus geometric limitations: Buses will need to navigate with another ~1 metre length. Route assessments to determine where stop lines and parking may be affected by turning buses.
  • 18. Bike on board demand estimates by route: Can aide in 2 or 3 rack question. Which routes to establish initially. As well as likelihood of capacity issues.
  • 19. Bike and ride locker demand and placement: Efficient placement at places of demand to minimise cost of implementation.
  • 20. Access: Review cycle routes to and from the bus route or facility</li></li></ul><li>EncouragementCulture & Behaviour Change<br />TravelWise within Auckland City<br />Develop flyers, brochures to encourage additional riders<br />Build culture around the activity<br />Riding mentors: a person to person coach for cycling<br />Examples found in Chicago, Illinois,USA<br />How to create a culture!<br />Influence Behaviour Change<br />
  • 21. EncouragementEvents and PR<br />Political leaders<br />Cultural leaders<br />Popular culture figures<br />Concepts:<br /><ul><li>Have these leaders star in their own Bike on Board training videos
  • 22. Ensure representatives and leaders are part of any new roll out
  • 23. Invite leaders and pop culture figures to public trainings, school, etc. </li></ul>Source: http://caa.org.nz/. Post by MarkR. 16/02/2011<br />
  • 24. ImplementationGetting it Right<br />NZ has the advantage to learn from the rest of the world on how this system works. <br />Beca has been researching this since 2003 – <br />We appreciate the issues and the tasks necessary to get it right. <br />Steps<br /><ul><li>Identify key stakeholders and project champions
  • 25. Plan for the system
  • 26. Identify demand and size of roll out
  • 27. Procure system
  • 28. Motivate, Educate, and Excite the public
  • 29. Training, PR, Marketing,
  • 30. Release
  • 31. Monitor, Evaluate, Respond, React</li></ul>We have to anticipate a build up of ridership and growth in overall awareness of the Cycle-PT system. Marketing and PR can build initial excitement, education to train people ahead of time. <br />The key is to build an integrated solution – all modes, all routes, on board and lockers. Feed the system with improved cycle facilities and cycle parking. As overall cycle demand and facilities grow – PT Trips will follow.<br />
