Successful Community Bike Sharing: A Case Study With Carmel, Indiana

Bike sharing has come a long way in the last decade, with the number of programs worldwide soaring from a few dozen to more than 1,000. Yet despite that monumental growth, bike sharing has for the most part been confined to major cities due to the burdensome logistical and financial demands of traditional bike-share models. We’re changing that paradigm. With tailored programs and unique public-private partnerships, we’ve brought bike sharing and all its benefits to smaller municipalities — communities like Carmel, Indiana.

Carmel is a perfect case study in how Zagster empowers communities of all sizes to implement bike shares of their own. In fact, it’s such a perfect case study we’ve produced a literal case study outlining how Zagster brought bike sharing to Carmel, and how the program continues to thrive.

While other bike-share options proved too unwieldy or expensive, Zagster enabled Carmel to implement a smart, flexible, and cost-effective system that made the city a better place to live and visit. But don’t just take our word for it.

“I love Zagster,” says Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard. “It’s been a great product for us.”
