Abstract
Bike sharing emerging from college campus in Mainland China has become a major part in the daily traveling of Chinese urban residents. It changes the traveling behavior of urban residents, and simultaneously, raises higher requirements on urban transportation facility construction and management. However, the return of bike sharing to college campus causes more troubles to schools. The fundamental cause is the closed peculiarity of campus traveling comparing with city traveling, and also the discrepancy between college campuses of different types. This paper investigates the traveling characteristics of bike sharing in college campus in three different locations in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province of China in the questionnaire, and compares the discrepancy with urban bike sharing traveling characteristics and the discrepancy in bike sharing use between college campuses of different types. From the perspective of parking, maintenance and operation, and hardware design, the paper eventually raises suggestions to optimize independent college campus bike sharing service facility and management consistent with urban system. The research may also offer beneficial reference to the release of bike sharing facilities consistent with urban system in all sorts of independent parks, especially college campus.
