Published October 31, 2017

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Thursday's Bikeshare Summit here will explore the benefits of and concerns about dockless bikeshare programs in the U.S. 

The North American Bikeshare Association is hosting the first-ever Bikeshare Right of Way Summit, which will bring together city right-of-way managers, planning professionals and bikeshare companies.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Public goals for bikeshare in the right of way
  • Benefits and limitations of emerging technologies to minimize impacts of bikeshare on urban right of way
  • Possible approaches to encourage and regulate IoT transportation services that consume public right of way

In the past year, dockless bikeshare systems have expanded into U.S. cities including Seattle, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

The Summit is Thursday, Nov. 2 from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the Swissotel Chicago, 323 East Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago.
