Bike sharing has outgrown its first failures in the '60s and '70s and has become ubiquitous around the world. This rapid growth is strongly intertwined with the rise of Smart Cities: the use of connected bikes makes the service more practical for users, avoids thefts and provides a large amount of data for system planners. Over the past few years, research on bike sharing has bloomed, providing several innovative solutions to improve the service and to encourage citizens to use environmentally… Expand

Hybridizing bike-sharing systems: the way to improve mobility in smart cities
The paper presents characteristics of both types of bike-sharing schemes and describes the examples of hybrid models to show benefits of this solution and Chosen methodology is the case study of selected European bike- sharing systems which combine features of both schemes – the dockless and the station-based.

A Dynamic Approach to Rebalancing Bike-Sharing Systems
This work proposes a dynamic rebalancing strategy that exploits historical data to predict the network conditions and promptly act in case of necessity and validate the proposed framework on the data provided by New York City’s bike-sharing system. Expand
Overview of Urban Mobility in Smart Cities
This study aims to obtain information on the most expressive intelligent mobility systems implemented in the main cities of the world, analyze the data and discuss their effects in favor of improvingExpand
Development of a Monitoring System on Environment and Human Health to Control a Smart Bike
The proposed development represents the Smart Bike concept, which with the help of sensors monitors the condition of the environment and cyclist health, analyses indicators and turns on the electric motor, which has a positive effect on the Smart City’s ecology condition. Expand
A Bike-sharing Optimization Framework Combining Dynamic Rebalancing and User Incentives
This work combines the two efforts and shows that a joint optimization considering both rebalancing and incentives results in a higher service quality for a lower cost than using simple rebalance. Expand

The role of smart bike-sharing systems in urban mobility
Following the success of the smart bike-sharing system in Paris, these systems are rapidly being introduced in European cities for daily mobility. The basic premise of the smart bike-sharing conceptExpand
SymbioCity: Smart cities for smarter networks
According to this new paradigm, which this paper calls “SymbioCity”, Smart City services can indeed be exploited to improve the performance of the same communication systems that provide them with data. Expand
Data Analysis and Optimization for (Citi)Bike Sharing
This paper provides novel problem formulations that have been motivated by both a close collaboration with the New York City bike share (Citibike) and a careful analysis of system usage data to discover the best placement of bikes to facilitate usage. Expand
Optimizing the location of stations in bike-sharing programs: A GIS approach
A growing number of cities are implementing bike-sharing programs to increase bicycle use. One of the key factors for the success of such programs is the location of bike stations in relation toExpand
Planning Bike Lanes based on Sharing-Bikes' Trajectories
A data-driven approach to develop bike lane construction plans based on large-scale real world bike trajectory data is proposed and the NP-hardness of the problem is proved and greedy-based heuristics to address it are proposed. Expand
Static repositioning in a bike-sharing system: models and solution approaches
This paper presents two mixed integer linear program formulations of a routing model that generalizes existing routing models in the literature and indicates that one of the formulations is very effective in obtaining high quality solutions to real life instances of the problem. Expand
Balancing Bicycle Sharing Systems: An Approach for the Dynamic Case
This work extends the previous work on the static variant of the problem by introducing an efficient way to model the dynamic case as well as adapting the previous greedy and PILOT construction heuristic, variable neighborhood search and GRASP. Expand
A 3-step math heuristic for the static repositioning problem in bike-sharing systems
Over the last few years, bike-sharing systems have emerged as a new mode of transportation in a large number of big cities worldwide. This new type of mobility mode is still developing, and manyExpand
Modelling the potential effect of shared bicycles on public transport travel times in Greater Helsinki: An open data approach☆
Abstract In many European cities, support for public transport and cycling in daily mobility is considered an efficient means to reduce air pollution, traffic jams, and carbon emissions. SharedExpand
Multi-source data analysis for bike sharing systems
Two types of regression models using multi-source data to predict the hourly bike pick-up demand at cluster level are proposed: Similarity Weighted K-Nearest-Neighbor (SWK) based regression and Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Expand
