Hi there, it’s Payton from the studio class again, with an update on how our research has helped to inform the bike sharing world over the past several months.
Our report got a surprising amount of attention from the press, including from:
- Virginia Tech’s press office
- WJLA News/TBD
- Washington City Paper
- Public radio’s Transportation Nation
Several of us from the class also worked with Dr. Buehler (note: you should totally buy his new book) to develop an article comparing our survey results with other surveys of local bicyclists, particularly with regard to demographics and trip purposes. That research is now being finalized, and has been accepted by the Transportation Research Board for its annual conference —- the most prestigious in the field — in 2013.
