Community Bike Shares

Lindsay M. Braun, an assistant professor in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, researches bike shares, cycling, and health. The new VeoRide program on campus promises a rich source of data: anyone with an app and the ability to pedal on two wheels can locate a nearby bike, unlock it, travel to their destination, and park it in any safe and unobtrusive spot for a small fare. Over time Braun can track ridership levels and evaluate how well dockless bike systems serve communities like Champaign-Urbana.
