The Los Angeles team implemented CiBiC, combining a human infrastructure bicycle commuting approach with a mobile application and participatory artwork to create a local bike-to-work community of practice.
CiBiC (Civic Bicycle Commuting) seeks to Increase the number of people from low-income neighborhoods in Northeast Downtown Los Angeles who bike to work, using a highly structured community-driven group bicycling system. Generating higher levels of transportation satisfaction provides a healthier, more economical, and sustainable alternative for the problematic options currently available.
CiBic reimagines bicycle commuting by supporting and encouraging bike-to-work flows. Users can install the CiBic smartphone app, where they will find the directional route and the group of riders that best align with their destination. Creating higher levels of transportation not only helps solve current transportation issues, but also provides positive externalities such as a healthier population and economic growth.
