This project, sponsored by WPI Facilities, proposes a bike share program to promote sustainable transportation at WPI. We interviewed operators of other university bike shares to determine which aspects of their programs were successful and unsuccessful and how they correlate to the WPI community. We consulted with stakeholders at WPI to learn how a bike share could benefit the campus and to identify the challenges to successful implementation. We conferred with Worcester city government officials, regional officials, and representatives of local bike advocacy groups to determine the state of biking in Worcester. Based on our findings, we ascertained the essential aspects of a university bike share and produced implementation plans for a bike share at WPI.
