The Federal Highway Administration just released a new report to help communities that are considering bike-sharing programs. The report is a go-to guide for those looking to get such programs off the ground.

The report outlines twelve planned and existing bike-sharing systems from around the U.S., in order to help explain the basics of bike-sharing through the choices that cities will face when launching a system.

Specifically, the report offers guidance on bike-share business models, station planning, implementation, typical costs per bike and per station, and pricing structures for bike-share members. The report also outlines potential sources of federal funding for bike-share systems.
