Abstract

This study analysed the feasibility of a bike-sharing programme in Singapore based on a case study in the Jurong Lake district. Data were collected using a two-stage perception survey to gather the public’s general awareness and opinions about bike sharing and followed by estimating the likely take-up rate of bike sharing. The results showed that bike-sharing schemes would be suitable around mass rapid transit stations and low rental costs would encourage bike sharing. Finally, a distance-based mode-choice model was established for four scenarios (morning peak and good weather, morning peak and bad weather, evening peak and good weather and evening peak and bad weather), focusing on walking, bike sharing and taking a bus. Weather could have an obvious impact on the frequency of bike sharing.
