Seattle Bike Share Pilot: 1 yr Later

Bike share in Ballard in designated parking areas.

Bike sharing = increased mobility.

Last time this year we were trying out an idea, just to see if it provided an additional mobility opportunity—no expectations, just a test. Turns out, the bike share permitting idea DOES increase mobility! Last fall, the early numbers looked good and 12 months later, they look even better, showing increased usage through May of 2018 (plus 7,200 rides per day last month!).

 

Seattle is biking up the rides!

Compared to  Portland’s more station-based Biketown, Seattle is rocking it! (a.k.a. super biking it; and no offense, Portland—we love that you are a bike town!)

Increase in bike share rides per month.

Coming up!

We present our recommendations for an annual bike share permitting program, followed by a July 23 City Council vote. Want to learn more? Float on over to our bike share page.
