3 Bikeshare A Brief History World s first bikesharing scheme developed in Amsterdam in Named Witte Fietsen or White Bikes. Developed over three generations of systems each producing technological advances Fourth generation expected to include innovations such as: - movable docking stations, - solar powered docking stations, and - mobile phone and iphone real time availability applications - Introduction of electric bikes Currently there are approximately 150 schemes operating world wide.

4 The dublinbikes Scheme Challenges for Dublin Population Density (persons per km 2 ) 10,000 in Dublin vs. 21,000 in Paris and 16,000 in Barcelona Modal Shift to Bikeshare from Car (including taxi) 3% in Dublin vs. 13% in Paris and 10% in Barcelona Cycling Infrastructure (residents per km cycle lane) 2,700 in Dublin vs. 5,900 in Paris and 10,800 in Barcelona Gender Profile of Users (% female users) 33 in Dublin vs. 36 in Paris and 49 in Barcelona

5 The dublinbikes Scheme Positives for Dublin Weather (mm rainfall per annum) 695 in Dublin vs. 813 in Lyon and 619 in Paris Cost (annual fee in Euro) 10 in Dublin vs. 29 in Paris and 40 in Barcelona Topography Dublin has a relatively flat urban area

6 The dublinbikes Scheme Overview dublinbikes officially opened in September Currently operates with 550 bicycles and 44 stations. Operated and maintained by JCDecaux in return for 72 advertising spaces Estimated value million. Success 84,000 subscriptions annually 5,000 daily trips undertaken. October highest daily rental recorded -7,052 bikes.

7 Success of the dublinbikes Scheme In August 2010, 11 months after opening, the scheme reached one millionth trip. To date over 4 million trips have been made using the dublinbikes bikeshare scheme. In September 2011 Dublin was ranked within the top 10 cycling cities in the world (Copenhagenize Consulting). Each dublinbike has an average rotation of 8.8 journeys per day greater than Paris, Barcelona or Lyon. Average Number of Rotations Per Day Lyon: Vélo v Paris: Vélib Seville: Sevici Dublin: dublinbikes

8 Research Undertaken Research conducted in DIT to: 1. Produce a transport model of the dublinbikes scheme. 2. Design an extension to the dublinbikes scheme capable of catering for the proposed DIT Grangegorman Campus. Modelling The dublinbikes scheme was investigated to determine if its trip patterns conformed to the classical gravity model, i.e; 1. Trips between stations close to each other are more likely than trips between stations which are a significant distance apart. 2. Trips between high capacity stations (stations with a high volume of docking stands) are more likely than trips between smaller capacity stations.

9 Analysis Data Sets Productions and Attractions The classical gravity model was used to formulate an origin-destination matrix using the productions and attractions for all 44 dublinbikes stations for a weekday a.m. peak period, 08:00am to 09:00am. Origin and Destination The production and attraction O-D matrix was compared to surveyed O-D results from a sample of dublinbikes stations during a similar weekday 08:00am to 09:00am time period.

10 Station 8 Gravity Model Attractions Surveyed Attractions

11 Station 32 Gravity Model Attractions Surveyed Attractions

12 Research Findings Based on this analysis the preferred trip length of a dublinbikes user is estimated to be 1.6 kilometres on a single trip. The research also indicates that over 75% of dublinbikes users travel 2 kilometres or less on a single trip. The existing distances between dublinbikes stations range from 250 to 350 metres apart. Therefore this analysis would indicate that stations could be spaced further apart, especially in areas of less demand.

13 Possible Station Layout to Provide for Proposed DIT Campus

14 Proposed Expansion to the dublinbikes Scheme It is expected that the dublinbikes scheme should be expanded to provide for up to 5,000 bikes with between 8,500-9,000 docking points. This would equate to the provision of somewhere in the region of 300 cycle stations which should for the most part provide for a ratio of 1.7 cycle stands per bike. It is an objective of the strategy to provide a minimum density of 8 stations per km 2 in most of the identified expansion zones 350 metres apart.

15 Criteria for Expansion Employment Destinations many areas selected are located in and around key urban districts that act as employment destinations. Residential Density To support and sustain the operation of a bike scheme, areas should contain a significant residential catchment. Public Transport The dublinbikes scheme can be used to complement other modes of public transport by facilitating journeys which may not always be achievable by other means of public transport. Public Amenities - Many of the areas selected for the expansion of the scheme are located in areas of significant amenity value and are recreational and cultural destinations within the City.

16 Zones of Expansion

17 dublinbikes Funding In February a grant of 500,000 from the National Transport Authority to Dublin City Council was approved to fund the design and implementation of the dublinbikes expansion. Negotiations on the expansion of the dublinbikes scheme begun with advertising firm JCDecaux in June. Free advertising space around the city was given to JCDecaux in exchange for their funding of the initial phase of the scheme however it is expected that little more advertising space will be handed over to fund the expansion.

18 Cycle Infrastructure Funding In June the Irish Public Transport Minister Alan Kelly announced a 7 million investment for cycling projects across the country. Sixteen projects both off road and on road are due to be completed over the next two years, adding 334km of cycle routes to the national network. The investment is part of a commitment in the programme for government which also saw a funding scheme launched earlier this year to help local authorities to deliver and improve cycling routes. The following map illustrates Dublin City s proposed and partially complete Green Cycle Network.

19 Expansion of Dublin s Cycle Lanes

20 Concluding Comments dublinbikes scheme successful, but on a small scale. Significant expansion required to significantly increase modal split for cycling. Future developments depends on the availability of funding.
