A feasibility study of a bike share program on the University of Alabama campus
This thesis sets out to examine how feasible a bike share program will be at the University of Alabama (UA). Three case studies of campus bike sharing programs across the United States are used to show the different bike sharing systems in existence. The advantages of a bike sharing program are highlighted to show how the system can offer alternative transportation to the university campus. The current status of bicycle uses on University of Alabama campus as well as policies put in place are also discussed. The last part of the thesis applies lessons learnt from the case studies and evolution of bike share to a feasibility study for UA campus.
