Take Clean Air Asia Public Bicycle Share System Perception Survey

Penang bike graffitiPublic Bicycle Share (PBS) Systems are growing in popularity and spreading across many cities and countries. In Asia, the number of PBS’ has grown close to a 100 from just one in 2007 and Asia also boasts of the largest system with about 90,000 cycles in Wuhan, China. Europe too saw the number of systems grow six fold in just six years.

Clean Air Asia has been working to raise the profile of Non Motorized Transport (NMT) and now with the University of Queensland is conducting this survey to understand the perception on PBS, especially in Asian cities.  We request you to answer the questions to gives us better insights on PBS.

Editor’s note:

I just took this survey. It took about 15/20 minutes to answer some 33 short questions. Most of them obvious to anyone who knows the PBS terrain. Overall well done. Though it is at time difficult to compress information or views on complex interactive systems into a simple yes/no/multiple choice.

Overall, worth taking and I do suggest you take advantage of their offer to get a copy of the final report. We will then discuss and invite contributions here in World Streets.

In the meantime you can find comprehensive information on and discussions of public bicycles and city cycling more generally and worldwide, at https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/tag/city-cycling/
