Several VT student teams braved the damp autumn chill of this past weekend to collect more surveys from the bike-sharing public. However, said public did not show up in droves, except for some hardier sorts — notably many from countries along the North Sea, who probably found the weather balmy. Therefore, we’ll be back out on the streets this coming (sunny!) weekend for one last round of surveys.
We’re also preparing our second survey, wherein we’re going to find out how other bike sharing systems around the world have adapted to the operational challenges that CaBi has encountered. Our class has split into two teams for the week, one to refine what we’ll need to know and one to begin an informational survey of peer bike share systems. It will be an interesting challenge, involving at least five languages! Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on excellent bike sharing systems.
