Bicycle share scheme natural experiment

Project Title: Impacts of bicycle share schemes on bicycle use, walking, physical activity levels and body mass index in a multi-ethnic Asian population: A natural experiment

Background

Reviews of bicycle share schemes (BSS) identified data for the impact of BSS on health is lacking. The introduction of the island-wide BSS in Singapore in January 2017 provided an opportunity to fill this evidence gap and investigate the impact of BSS on overall bicycling.

Project aim

Using the multi-ethnic cohort (MEC), the project aims to assess impacts of the increase in bicycle use since the introduction of BSS on outcomes including walking activity.
