A strategy of cities to combat the negative effects of urbanization, such as pollution and congestion, is to encourage biking. Due to an increase in population and car use in Cuenca, - Ecuador, the transportation department, EMOV EP, is launching a bike share program to encourage cycling. The goal of our project was to assist EMOV EP in promoting the system by creating interconnected routes between bike-sharing stations for commuting, recreation, and self- guided tourism. We investigated potential uses of the system, perceptions of safety, points of interest, and strategies for selecting routes to create route maps. These were designed for EMOV EP to distribute via the web and the bike share app.
