INTERESTED IN BIKE SHARE BUT NOT SURE WHERE TO START?
As a free service to communities interested in bike sharing, a Zagster Transportation Planner will perform a feasibility analysis customized just for your circumstances and goals.
There are no costs, no strings, and no contracts. The feasibility analysis is meant solely as a planning tool to arm decision-makers with the information necessary to determine if bike sharing makes sense for their communities, and if so, how to move forward with implementation.
What's Included with a Feasibility Analysis?
Bike share overview
The overview helps you and your stakeholders fully understand the bike-share industry. This includes the history of bike sharing, a comparison of bike-share providers and technologies, and the reasons bike sharing is one of the fastest growing transportation modes in the United States.
We study your city to create a model that helps you understand the potential sources and volume of demand for shared bikes. The demand analysis is crucial for determining if bike sharing will suit your city.
See how your city compares to similar places that have implemented bike sharing. The Comparative Analysis allows you to plan for success and avoid points of failure.
scope and phase Plan
Understand the potential size, scale and station locations for a bike-share program in your city. Scope and phase planning will help you identify key stakeholders and determine how to fundraise to launch and sustain a successful program.
Next Steps: Post-Analysis Consultation
Advanced IMPLEMENTATION support Plan
After completion of a feasibility analysis, Zagster's team of Bike Share Consultants will suggest specific implementation timelines, funding and sponsorship options, and recommendations for user pricing.
As part of an implementation proposal, Zagster may visit your city to demonstrate technology and work with stakeholders on key issues like permitting and way-finding, and to help you fundraise with local, regional or national sponsors.
Other feasibility studies can cost up to $100,000. Our service is free and, if paired with a pilot program, delivers actual rather than theoretical data about bike sharing's viability in a given community.
