Bike Share in Greater Manchester – University of Salford in partnership with British Cycling
Bike share schemes have been considered as one solution to problems of poor health and inactivity in our cities, whilst also being a means of increasing travel by bike and reducing reliance on the private car.
This study aimed to understand the potential of bike share to increase cycling levels and explore the reasons why it has been an attractive option to some, but not others. This research helps us to establish a better understanding of what is required to create better places for people to cycle in their everyday life.
