Building a college bike share may sound like a daunting task. Yet while roadblocks to that goal exist, they can easily be surmounted with the right preparation, planning, and persistence. So whether you’re a bike-savvy genius with a dream program in mind, or a budding eco-activist brand new to bikes, we’ve got you covered with our upcoming online workshop: How to Build a Bike Share On Campus.
When: Thursday, March 24, 2016 Time: 2 pm EST / 11 am PST
So what’s this about? And why should you care? Good questions!
Presented by Zagster’s Head of Marketing Nate Taber, the workshop will cover all the basics of bike-sharing programs: What they are, how they work, and what models work best in a campus environment. Digging a bit deeper, we will also explore why bike sharing fits perfectly into the campus ecosystem.
We will also discuss where Zagster fits within the broader bike-sharing landscape and explain how other colleges can launch successful, sustainable programs of their own. This includes an overview of the timeline for implementing a bike share — including key benchmarks before, during, and after launch — as well as a rundown of common challenges you may face — and how Zagster can help you overcome those obstacles.
A live Q&A session will follow the presentation.
You’ll leave this workshop with all the knowledge and confidence necessary to begin bringing a bike share to your campus.
