Abstract
In consultation with the Central District Health Department, the Community and Regional Planning program conducted a bike share analysis that locates and optimizes the number of bikes and bike share stations for a 2.25-mile radius in the Downtown Boise area. After examining several bike share projects in other cities and studies of their methodologies two analyses from Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles County, California proved helpful in developing the Boise Bike Share Location Analysis. Using GIS optimization analysis to determine the optimal number of bikes and bike stations resulted in 140 bikes and 14 stations as the optimal finding.
