Abstract: In Singapore, the problems of land scarcity, global warming and health challenges call for a need of a car-lite nation. These challenges could potentially be alleviated with bike-sharing systems, which was recently implemented since the beginning of 2017. This paper therefore aims to conduct a study to find out if bike-sharing has been able to change the cycling habits of Singaporeans. A public survey was conducted to gather information on cycling behaviors and opinions both before and after bike-sharing was introduced. The data was then collated and analyzed using a difference-in-difference statistical model. Findings have suggested that bike-sharing has increased the cycling rates in Singapore as the statistical model revealed that interaction term was statistically significant and positively correlated to cycling rates. Additionally, gender was found to be a very significant variable in explaining cycling rates, meaning that males were more inclined to cycle and use the bike-sharing as compared to females. Those aged 30 years old and below and those with a monthly income range of $1,800 to $3,500 or $5,501 to $10,000 were also more inclined to participate in bike-sharing. Overall, the public believes that there is still much improvement to be desired regarding the infrastructure and bike-sharing systems. More than half the respondents agreed that bike-sharing is the way to go in achieving a sustainable transport system, but it is also important to note that many are still unsure about bike-sharing. Hence, this paper will also provide suggestions for improvement based on the responses gathered.
