A great big thank you goes out to the hundreds of people who volunteered a few minutes each to answer our class’s surveys over the past three weekends. This past weekend’s amazing fall weather proved to be a gold mine for survey research, with many people stopping by to share their thoughts about the system.
We’ve heard great suggestions from the riding public and will be sharing their thoughts — whether through the survey or through informal conversations with our researchers — with the folks who run Capital Bikeshare.
Our team has also identified almost two dozen peer systems around the world that we will be contacting soon, online and by phone. We’ll ask them about how they handle many of the issues that CaBi has faced, and about what improvements they’ve introduced as they’ve grown.
Another group of students has started to lay the groundwork for a great final report, which we’ll be unveiling here in December.
