The Rise of the eBike

I’m trying to re-arrange my schedule to get to this one…

Portland State University
Center for Transportation Studies
Spring 2010 Transportation Seminar Series

Speaker: Geoff Rose, Director, Institute of Transport Studies and Transport Theme Leader in the Monash Sustainability Institute (bio)

Topic: Emerging Implications of Electric Bicycles

Abstract: A variety of types of electric bicycles are now available to consumers in America and around the world. While there has been strong uptake of these vehicles in China, there remains uncertainty in other markets about their ultimate potential as a transportation mode. The technology is evolving in ways that are likely to better meet traveller’s needs and the growth of this mode presents both opportunities and challenges. Since they have implications for transportation policy, planning and operations it is appropriate for the transportation profession to consider these vehicles carefully. This seminar will review developments and emerging issues with this form of transportation technology.

When: Friday, May 21, 2010, 12:00 – 1:00pm

Where: PSU Urban Center Building, SW 6th and Mill, Room 204
