How it works!

Pacers Bikeshare team randomly SELECTS from list
Attend a training, answer surveys, and RIDE!
Why is this happening?
Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. and City of Indianapolis, Department of Sustainability are partnering to better understand bikeshare riding patterns and to see what happens when the barrier payment is removed.
We want to better understand why and why not people ride bikes, and hopefully change behavior and expose people in a fun way to an active and in many cases, new, form of transportation.
I'm excited! What do I do next?
Add your name to the list and answer a few questions.
On August 19, the Pacers Bikeshare team will randomly select participants.
We will notify everyone by the end of August.
After attending a fall orientation, you will have your pass to start riding!
If chosen, what do I do next?

Ride often (2-3 times per week) !

How much do I have to ride?
This study relies on you to ride often. We want to gather a lot of data and get your answers on regular surveys.
Expect to ride as much as you can year-round.
We hope participants will integrate bikeshare 2-3 times per week at minimum.
