Life cycle: is it the end for Britain’s dockless bike schemes?

Life cycle: is it the end for Britain’s dockless bike schemes?

CDRC researcher Oliver O’Brien used two datasets on the CDRC Data platform, as part of a significant data contribution for a Guardian newspaper online article looking at the recent rise and fall of dockless bikeshare systems in various English cities. Oliver was also interviewed for the article, and contributed commentary and insight into the success of the systems, based on his observations of the data on CDRC Data and elsewhere during the course of his research.

The datasets used were:

Over 50 datasets relating to individual city bikeshare systems are available on CDRC Data, including some open datasets which can be directly downloaded. They are listed at: https://data.cdrc.ac.uk/product/bicycle-sharing-system-docking-stations
