Benefits and First Effects of Novi Sad Bike-Sharing System

The first part of the paper provides a general overview of existing bike-sharing (BS) systems in European cities that have a longer tradition in promoting cycling and implementing such systems. The paper examines existing capacities, findings of user satisfaction surveys, and the impacts of introducing bike-sharing on modal split and on the emissions of pollutants. The second part of the paper presents the effects of introducing the first phase of BS system to Novi Sad which is a part of a broader scheme termed “Let’s return Novi Sad back to cyclists.” It also presents the basic features of Novi Sad's traffic system development over the past thirty years, with particular attention to bicycle traffic development. The goal of these analyses is to highlight the importance of introducing new traffic policy measures to reduce car use and expand the use of environmentally friendly modes of transport. The BS scheme is one of the measures to address Novi Sad’s traffic issues and it requires continuous follow-up: monitoring usage, implementing corrective measures and improving the system.
