Beyond Equity — A Strategy for Developing Critical Leadership in Transportation

2-pager: Integrating Bike Share and Transit

For bike share systems, transportation integration means improving connections to and with existing public transportation, making bike-to-transit trips easier and reducing barriers to utilizing either system. Transit integration can range from simply siting stations near existing transit stops to creating an integrated payment system. Communities of color tend to be more transit dependent but live in areas with less reliable and frequent service. The goal of transit integration is to expedite transit and bike share transfers and expand the reach of service without a “double payment” for a single trip. Integration facilitates equitable access by consolidating payment methods, easing first and last mile journeys, and facilitating greater overall connectivity among modes.
