Bike Sharing-A Global View: Tues. April 10
CABA’s Martin Zimmerman as Guest Speaker
Why is bike sharing the rage and where does Charlotte fit into the bigger picture ? With 236,000 bikes in 33 countries and still accelerating, bike sharing is on the move! Martin has just returned from a study tour of Buenos Aires, Argentina where he experienced the bike share system and interviewed bike system managers, experts and local advocates. Prior tours of Paris, Lyon, and Strasbourg in France and Washington D.C. in the USA have rounded out his views of bike share’s merits and challenges. His article pending publication for Urban Land magazine highlights his findings. Martin has published over 80 articles and reviews on current issues of urban design, smart growth and mobility in the USA and abroad.
