Also you can see that

There are no bike rental

Stations in Central West

End, and none in East


This means that we have

An opportunity to put

Rental stations there and it

Will increase revenue and

The city would make money

Off of it as well.


  • There is a huge space called Forest park that no one has taken advantage of. There is just money sitting there waiting to go to a store or a social service.

  • There is a great profit waiting there and I plan to take it with my Bike Rental services.

How it will operate
How it will operate

  • People that come into the tents will be offered a choice of how much time you will have the bike for and the price of usage.

  • Also they will be offered the option of what kind of bike they want to use.

Travel time
Travel time

  • On google maps it estimated only a 15 minute bike ride to downtown St. Louis from the Central West End.

  • This would be a nightmare of 15 minutes but the great thing about it is that, it will be 15 minutes of riding down Forest Park.


  • Though we do trust the people we will install a tracker in every bike so that we can avoid theft.

  • Also we make them sign an agreement that states and damage on the bike when returned will be fully paid by the operator.

Locations of bike stations tents
Locations of Bike stations (Tents)

  • There could be Bike rental Tents all along S Shinker Blvd.

  • Which would give people full access to Forest park and all the way to Downtown St. Louis where a Bike rental store would be located.

  • After a person has finished there time with one of our bikes they will be notified by a vibration on the bike to return the bike to a tent or the Bike Rental Headquarters located in downtown St. Louis.

  • It is there where we will take back the bike and put it back into storage.

How else could it help

  • It could also help decrease the rate of obesity in the community and make West central End a much more happier place to be.

  • It would also bring more people into forest park. Being that central west end is basically Forest park.

  • It would also bring in a good amount of profit. Also it never hurt anyone to try new things.

  • New York is also trying something very similar to make New York a bike rental city.


  • New York has seemed to be very successful and have what they want in good order.

  • Another City that is thriving in bike rentals is San Francisco Bike Rentals.

  • They are very successful and bring in a good amount of profit according to there statistics they are doing just fine.


1. Bicycling is for everyone

•Bicycling is the second most popular outdoor activity in the United States. (Outdoor Foundation, 2010)

•47% of Americans say they would like more bike facilities in their communities. (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2008)

•Most trips Americans make are short: 50% are less than 3 miles, 40% are less than 2 miles, and 28% are less than 1 mile. (US Department of Transportation, 2009)

2. Bicycling boosts the economy

•The U.S. bicycle industry sold $5.6 billion in bicycles and equipment in 2009. (National Bicycle Dealers Association, 2010)

•More than three times as many new bicycles (14.9 million) are sold in the U.S. each year than cars (4.6 million). (National Bicycle Dealers Association, 2010; Bureau of Transportation Statistics, 2010)
