Kansas City BCycle Bike Share System Planning

BikeWalkKC staff has extensive experience with all aspects of bike share planning and operations, including analysis and mapping of everything from regional demand to local bicycle network optimization. In 2012 the organization produced a detailed implementation plan that led to the launch of the 12 station starter system in downtown Kansas City, MO. Since that time, BikeWalkKC has managed site selection and station design for two major expansions. Now at 30 stations, BikeWalkKC conducts nearly all demand analysis and expansion planning for a system that continues to grow. In 2014 BikeWalkKC staff produced a detailed plan that outlined necessary steps to expanding access to bike share for traditionally underserved communities. This plan followed months of research and extensive public engagement.
