Abstract: In a city, one of the most important systems needed to ensure urban flow is a transportation system. Within that system is a bike share system, which is a newer addition to cities compared to the already existing transportation options. To ensure it satisfies the main goal of the system, to provide an additional method of getting around a crowded city, it will be analyzed through perspective breakdown, value added analysis, shaping forces, causal loops, and the conceptagon. These thinking tools help to change the way we look at this complex problem and its solutions within the bigger picture. This analysis demonstrates how a bike share system fits into an urban society.
