Webinar Recap: How to Bring Bike Sharing to College Campuses

Bike share station placement on campus

Building a first-rate campus bike share doesn't have to be difficult. Rather, it can be as easy as watching this short video about, well, building a first-rate campus bike share. Ok, so it's a little more involved than that. But in the video below — a recording of Zagster's webinar on planning, launching, and sustaining bike-sharing programs for colleges of any type and size — you'll learn all the basics you need to get started on your own program.

In the video, Zagster Head of Marketing Nate Taber explains how and why bike shares make for ideal transportation amenities on college campuses. For instance, did you know that installing a single new parking space can cost between $20,000 and $30,000? A complete campus bike-sharing program can get running for less than that while also servicing far more people on a daily basis.

Using Purdue University as a case study, Nate then outlines how Zagster implements flourishing bike shares for our college partners. To give you a sense of what we mean by "flourishing," since Zagster's Purdue program went live last August, students have offset 15,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions just by riding our bikes.

But enough about Zagster. On to the video.
