Community Partner: Heartland B-Cycle
Year: 2016
Team Members Involved

With bike rentals in Omaha gaining popularity each year, it was important for the Heartland B-Cycle team to understand the patterns behind this growth. This project revealed some of these patterns and provided data to the team which aided them in planning for future demand of bike rentals. This project also found inefficiencies inside the current system and provided information on why certain phenomenon occurred.
