Our team of Environment, Economy, Development and Sustainability (EEDS) students at The Ohio State University were tasked with analyzing the current state of bike sharing in Columbus, Ohio. This project is important for the City to address because of the immense amount of changes happening with bike sharing programs. Due to the recent development of Lime discontinuing their dockless bikes in the city of Columbus, it has become increasingly more important to explore where bike share systems in Columbus stand and how it can be enhanced. Many of the questions that were posed to us during the introduction of our project were about which bike system was preferred by riders, if there are parking and safety issues with dockless bike systems, which system is more economically viable for the city and the citizens, and how to address the first and last mile issue of commuting within low income communities. In the course of our research, our team focused on four main objectives to best analyze bike sharing in Columbus. We evaluated the current status of Columbus as well as three other supporting objectives relating to mobility, health, and low-income communities to develop final recommendations for the City. Our major findings were based on researching successful programs in other cities and considering how to apply successful models in other cities to the needs of the City of Columbus.
