Residents expect transportation networks to be multimodal, well-connected and accessible for users of various abilities all users. From Beijing and Paris to Lone Tree and Westminster, municipalities throughout the world have turned to bike sharing systems to meet increased demand for multimodal connectivity.   Bike-share systems vary in type and scale ranging from station-based systems to dockless and hybrid options.

This activity will provide planners around the Denver region with information that will enable them to make concrete decisions about bike share in their community.  It is designed to achieve several planning related objectives: inform public planners and agencies about new or unique ways to both conceptualize and implement multimobility strategies; generate, share, and exchange such ideas in front of a peer audience; deepen conversations about mobility solutions in the face of increasing regional auto traffic congestion; and connect planners, policymakers, bike and pedestrian advocates to people and resources they might need to pursue local implementation.  Participants will learn creative strategies, model policies, and best practices to improve the personal mobility options for the region’s residents.

This activity will be a mix between an in-person seminar and a moderated discussion, with time reserved for a panel discussion at the end.  Speakers will be asked to prepare a presentation that demonstrates how their organization has worked to address issues associated with different kinds of bike-share programs.  Speakers will be Hans Reichgelt (Westminster), Brenden Paradies (Aurora), Cindy Patton (Denver), and Austin Good (Lone Tree).  All meeting materials, including presentations and audio recordings, will be hosted by DRCOG online.

We will use an online registration page and an in-person sign-up sheet to record attendance.  Like previous Metro Vision Idea Exchanges, we will administer a survey to evaluate the effectiveness and relevance of activity content.  Kevin Priestley will be the point of contact who is responsible for the proper administration of this activity.
