Downloadable Content

open in viewer

The Worcester City Council recently received a Local Government Association (LGA) grant to collaborate with the University of Worcester on a pilot scheme whereby Woo Bikes would place e-bikes with local employers for a trial period between January and June 2021. To assist in this endeavor, the team reviewed current and best practices in the implementation of bike share and employer bike pool schemes. We evaluated employer interest in the bike share pilot through a survey and assessed employee interest through a focus group. The team found that overcoming the institutional and behavioral barriers to cycling is difficult, but provided several recommendations about how best to appeal to businesses with this scheme.
