Assesment of Bicycle Sharing Programs from a User Perspective: KAYBIS

Session

Civil Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment

Description

Bicycles are highly preferred as an efficient means of transportation today, particularly in terms of sustainability. There are currently over 1000 Bicycle Sharing Programs (BSPs) worldwide that are organized to promote the use of bicycles with individual or public transportation in an integrated manner. The first implemented BSP in Turkey is known as KAYBIS, and many other cities are also considering or planning similar programs. However, the availability of information and user statistics related to KAYBIS does not clearly indicate the level of adoption of BSP by users.

In this study, the factors influencing users' preferences for KAYBIS were determined and evaluated. This was conducted through an online survey where users answered questions related to bicycle sharing. The results obtained will serve as the basis for user-based conjoint questions in a future study titled 'User KAYBIS Preference Modeling.' This will contribute to gaining insights for the improvement and development of the BSP program.
