Stage Intelligence has analysed cycle usage information from Cycle Hire Schemes and developed some unique solutions based on Artificial Intelligence to help predict and manage cycle usage across large city wide schemes. This ability can also be used to create and manage Service Level Agreements that meet the needs of cycle users.
Stage Intelligence has created a White Paper that highlights some of the issues and usage patterns. We present our thoughts and finding as a discussion framework that Cycle Scheme Owners and Operators can use to help them create a workable SLA to meet the demands of cycle users.
Improve Cycle Hire Scheme Performance:
For membership numbers to increase, cycle hire scheme users need to depend on the scheme like any form of transport. Not being able to find a bike or a parking space is like going to a bus stop and finding out there are no buses today… but if you walk 1/2 a mile you might be able to get one! How many times would you do this before you gave up using buses?
Cycle Scheme owners can improve the scheme performance by optomising the network to improve cycle and space availability. Stage Intelligence are specialists in complex Artificial Intelligence Solutions for Logistics Problems. Our Logistics Recommender BICO – can calculate the optimum instruction to give to truck drivers in real time. Instructions includes “go to a specific Cycle Docking Station” and “pick-up or drop-off X bikes”.
