Transportation contributes 29% of annual greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, with light duty vehicles, such as those used by commuters, contributing 59% of transportation related emissions. There is significant potential to empower commuters to consider the environmental impact of their mode choice when selecting among different options.
Electric bicycles, and electric bicycle sharing programs, represent a new technology in the transportation system. E-bike sharing programs have the potential to replace current modes of transportation, while also improving the mobility of disadvantaged populations. This work will use a survey approach to gather data as to who the users of the e-bike share are and the types of trips which they are making with the e-bikes.
