Professor David Pimentel secures a collaborative grant to study bike-share systems

Professor David Pimentel secures a collaborative grant to study bike-share systems

A collaboration between Professor Michael Lowry (Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Professor Pimentel has secured a $60,000 grant, from the U.S. Department of Transportation, to study the legal and practical implementation of bike-share systems in the Pacific Northwest.  

Prof. Pimentel placed an article last year in the Tennessee Law Review about the law and policy governing bicycling, inspired in part by the uniquely bike-friendly laws in the state of Idaho. Prof. Lowry's research specialty is transportation systems, with particular emphasis on bicycling. Bike-sharing is exploding all over the country -- a dockless system is coming to Moscow and to the University of Idaho as early as fall 2018 -- but is raising difficult operational and legal issues in its implementation. Prof. Lowry's and Pimentel's grant proposal for a multidisciplinary study of those issues was the first choice of the 2018-2020 Research Small Project Proposals submitted to the Pacific NW Transportation Consortium (Region 10), the body that administers this federal grant money.

Professor Pimentel (L) and Professor Lowry (R) with Hans Stoops (C) visiting from Stockholm on behalf the Swedish bicycle advocacy organization Cykel Främjandet (http://cykelframjandet.se/), who met in Moscow last month to discuss bicycle laws and policy in Idaho.
