Dayton, OH Bike Share Feasibility Study 2013

  • Date Enacted: Jan 1, 2013


This study was developed to understand the characteristics that make bike share transportation in comparable cities successful, and determine if a bike share program is feasible in Dayton.

The objectives of this study are to:

  • Gauge the Dayton region’s support for a bike share program through collection of community input from a bike share survey.
  • Determine the portion of the Miami Valley most suitable for a bike share program by examining the factors that have proven to correlate to a bike share’s success based on data from other cities.
  • Answer the question of whether the Dayton region is “ready” to sustain a bike share.

The study determined that Dayton’s downtown area is very likely to have near-term success sustaining a bike share system. A bike sharing program would complement Dayton’s current aims to expand bicycle usage. Bike sharing would offer a highly visible, affordable, and accessible mobility option for diverse groups, which include downtown residents, employees, students, and visitors.
