Use Characteristics and Mode Choice Behavior of Electric Bikes in China

This paper presents the results of surveys on the use of electric bikes, traditional bicycles, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) scooters in Shanghai and Kunming, China. Background information is first presented on the two cities, including the transportation services that are available. The paper then describes the survey methodology and sampling approaches. Survey results are given, with focus on the socio-demographic attributes of two-wheel vehicle users. The paper then presents structural models predicting mode choice based on user and mode characteristics and stated preference responses. The paper concludes with a discussion on the policy implications of the research findings.
