Implementing and Expanding a Public Bicycle System in Metro Vancouver

This project with TransLink, the Greater Vancouver transit authority, will develop a map to encourage cyclists to navigate Vancouver using a proposed public bicycle system. The map will show riders the best routes to take, based on hard data such as road grade and quality as well as soft data such as aesthetics and viewpoints. The research will include conducting a survey, as well as administering interviews to gain insight into potential cyclist’s views on a public bicycle system. Further, the research will include a trip to Paris to study the Velib system, a successful public bicycle system recently launched.
