Dockless bike share has emerged rapidly in cities around the world. Whilst the scale of these systems is impressive, the lack of docks has caused some parking related issues; in Europe, China, North America and Australia. The introduction of these ‘floating’ systems present opportunities for large scale bike share without the level of government expenditure required for some docked bike share systems. The lack of docking locations can however lead to haphazard parking and public nuisance issues.
In this VicRoads commissioned report, we produced a literature review of the approaches taken in different cities that have dockless bike share; examining successful techniques to manage this new form of public transport.
