Bicycle Share’s Effect on UBC Property Trust Residential Bicycle Storage Reisman, Sean


This project, Bicycle Share’s Effects on the UBC Property Trust Residential Bike Storage, is a student-led collaboration with SEEDS, Campus and Community Planning, and UBC Properties Trust. E3 Eco Group was also involved in this project as the consultant working on behalf of UBCPT. The goal of this project was to determine the effects, if any, the Campus Bike Share program has had on the UBC Property Trusts class I and class II bicycle storage facilities since the start of the bike share pilot project. Ultimately, the findings from this project will generate recommendations for UBCPT and provide recommendations for the Bicycle Parking section of the REAP guidelines and the UBC Development Handbook. To meet this objective, the following methods were used 1. Literature Review focusing on current design guidelines in other cities with Bikeshare 2. GIS Analysis to get a better understanding of trips starting and ending in UBC Neighbourhoods 3. Resident Survey to get an understanding of how UBCPT residents are affected by the Bike Share Program.
