Title: Methodology for Determining GHG Emission Reductions through Bicycle Sharing Projects
Prepared by: CityRyde, LLC
Date: June 30, 2011
Description: The report provides a proposed methodology that applies to project activities that reduces GHG emissions through the usage of public sharing-based bicycle transportation systems; typically found in an urban setting. Applicable bicycle types include standard, exclusively human-powered peddle bikes, as well as e-bikes. The proposed methodology typically applies to those project activities that induce modal shift in transportation from carbon-intensive modals to less-intensive modals as enabled by the project activity itself (e.g., bicycle sharing enables shared bicycle usage by making them available in a slew of locations within the public setting).
