ATS14- Transit and active transportation- Jeff Owen

494 views

Published on

This session will highlight how transit forms the backbone of a larger active transportation system and helps connect travelers to areas that are beyond their reach by bike or walking alone. Hear about this framework from various scales – short trips, regional commutes, statewide travel and beyond. Presentations will cover recent trends and analysis in CTUs (cycle-transit users), bikes-on-board, bike parking, locating bike share with transit stations and planning efforts underway, as well as real stories from current travelers who combine active transportation and transit.

  29. 29. 1. Municipal (ex: Portland Bike Share, pdxbikeshare.com) • City/Region wide • Large kiosks Future: Bike Share as First/Last Mile 2. Corporate (ex: Intel OBI, Nike, Kaiser) • Corporate campus to transit • In development 3. Emerging (ex: Kiel Johnson’s plan, new technology) • Flexible, scalable • Can start small
  30. 30. Future: Corporate Bike Share • Intel OBI pilot: • Developing an open source-inspired model for bike sharing • Pilot project with 30 bikes • Plan to re-launch with 200+ bikes after acceptance • Great potential for link to MAX (LRT) stations! instagram.com/openbikeinitiative openbikeinitiative.org
  31. 31. Future: Corporate Bike Share • Kaiser e-bike pilot: • Metro RTO grant award to acquire, deploy, and study usage patterns of 30 folding e-bikes to 180 employees at three work sites • Test user acceptance of e-bikes as a first/last mile commuting solution • Employee would have the bike for up to 3 months Bike model selected for project: Currie iZip E3 Compact http://www.currietech.com
  32. 32. “Participants in the study may use the e-bikes however they wish, with the expectation they will be used as a first/last mile commuting solution for longer trips.” “For example, instead of driving to work, participants could take public transportation such as the MAX Light Rail, using the e-bikes to get from home or work to the transit stop.”
