                               Bike Works - Bike Share Proposal

Summary (in non-Swarthmore-essay words)

Bike Works will be responsible for Bike Share's success, meaning Bike Works runs the program but
reports to Student Council, specifically:
   The right number of bikes.
   Maintenance of bikes.
   Management of all the current components: check out system (McCabe), visual identification
      system (Maintenance).
   Addition of any necessary components: lost/damaged bike consequences, student evaluation
      process, tracking processes, student rental contact, winter/rain policies.
   Job creation for students?

Right number of bikes
   Bike Works will make sure Bike Share has 10 bikes.
   4 bikes for $90.00/bike will be provided ASAP.

  Bike Works will make sure all 10 bikes are in perfect running condition for the original contract of
     $250/semester, $150 retainer for spare parts for the year.
  If a problem isn't fixable, Bike Works will replace the bike, except in the case of improper use.
  Tools that were part of Swarthmore Cycling could be used to have repair nights for all students’
     bikes as well as Bike Share.
  Complete check-ups outside of emergency problems (see possible additions) happen once every
     other week on Monday mornings 9:00am. All bikes have to be returned the Sunday night before at
     10:00pm, with fines applied if not the case. Fine money goes to McCabe Library.

Management of all current components
  Bike Works needs to have leverage of all current components: student initiatives fail not from a
    lack of commitment but from lack of accountability. This way, Bike Works is accountable for Bike
    Share and will do it's best to ensure the success of Bike Share.
  Bike Works needs access to the current check out system in McCabe.
  Bike Works needs access to Maintenance facility
  Empty room in Parrish basement needs to have a lock, with Bike Works having access.

Possible additions to program structure
   Problems will be addressed to
   Other bikes can’t be locked in the Parrish overhang rack: they will be removed otherwise.
       Bike Works of Chester                                         Youth Development through

    Student feedback system.
    Usage tracking at McCabe.
    Better system to nail the accountable.
Job creation for students?
   Jeff wants this to be a student group initiative, similar to how SCCS operates computers for the
      school. Could also be an opportunity to expand and organize Bike Works as a student group.
   Jeff will be the be the main point person for Bike Share for the time being, but in the future, Bike
      Share should be a student job: either a paid position or a student group responsibility, like SCCS
      for computers.
             The fall back would be that if students weren’t able to do it, Bike Works personnel
                 would step in: either staff or Chester program participants (kids or adults)
Funding: for Bike Works, the nonprofit but in the future, this could be for Bike Works, the student group.
