Bike-sharing stations: A maximal covering location approach

Abstract

The promotion of sustainable alternatives to motorized individual mobility has been seen in the past few decades as one of the cornerstones in a strategy to reduce the negative externalities related to the transportation sector. Bicycle sharing is increasingly popular as a sustainable transport system and the number of bike sharing schemes has grown significantly worldwide in recent years. One of the most important elements in implementation of these systems is the location of the stations. In fact the non-optimal locating of bike sharing compromises its success.
