In July 2012, Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) researchers released a peer-reviewed research report through the Mineta Transportation Research Institute, Public Bikesharing in North America: Early Operator and User Understanding. TSRC Co-Director Susan Shaheen is the lead author of the report. It documents the state of public bikesharing in the United States (U.S.) and Canada, including key factors such as essential attributes and business models; economics and insurance issues; evolution of information technology (IT)-based bikesharing; and the impact of bikesharing on walking, bicycling, public transit, and exercise. It also offers public policy recommendations. Dr. Shaheen authored the publication with Dr. Elliot Martin, Adam Cohen, and Rachel Finson.

Chapter IV of this report evaluates public bikesharing in North America from several angles including: impact on public transit, trip purpose, helmet use, and bikesharing as an enhancement to an existing transportation system.
