Prague: 21st June 2011
Final Project Conference
Around 90 participants from all over Europe attended the OBIS project final conference in Prague on 21 June 2011 at the Czech Ministry of Transport (Ministerstvo dopravy). Delegates heard all about the OBIS project and the successes and learning points relevant to public bike sharing which have emerged during the three years of the project. These ranged from practicalities such as the difficulties encountered by redistribution trucks in narrow streets to the importance of getting high level political support for a bike sharing scheme. The main output of the project, the Bike Sharing Handbook, was presented and discussed during the conference and participants were informed of the comprehensive results and recommendations from three years of research.
The handbook in English is now available to download (click here). The handbook will be available to download in other languages as well as the printed versions at the end of August 2011.
The conference presentations are also available for downloading.
