PSU talk will cover bike/transit integration

TriMet’s lead bike planner, Colin Maher, is slated for an upcoming seminar at PSU’s Center for Transportation Studies. The topic is “Beyond the Bike Hook: Linking Bicycles and Transit.” Maher’s a smart guy so this should be quite informative. Details are below:

Friday, January 28, 2011
Room 204 of the Distance Learning Center Wing of the Urban Center on the Portland State University campus

Speaker: Colin Maher, TriMet

Topic: Beyond the Bike Hook: Linking Bicycles and Transit

Abstract: While TriMet and other transit agencies serve many commuters by having racks for bikes on trains and buses, large bike parking facilities in global capitals of urban bicycling provide the key link between bikes and transit. Following the lead of European and Asian cities, the Portland region is starting to develop a network of bike-transit facilities; TriMet is piloting smart bike parking technology in the form of electronic bike lockers and “Bike & Rides”. This presentation discusses the background and planning for bike-transit integration in the region and shares insights into bike-transit travel patterns, habits, and market segmentation gained from recent rider surveys.

Colin, great topic for Portland, the time is right with the new Trimet, PSU and Hillsboro facilities now open and helping solve the 1st & Last Mile problem. And PSU thanks again for your support for such discussions.
