Student Spotlight Video: Mike McQueen on Expanding E-Bike Incentive Programs
Posted on February 6, 2020
Mike McQueen is a second year PSU masters in transportation engineering student working with John MacArthur and Kelly Clifton. A two-time Eisenhower Fellow, and the 2019 YPT National StreetLight Fellow, Mike researches e-bike travel behavior, and in this video he describes his work on How E-Bike Incentive Programs are Used to Expand the Market. For many commuters, the high cost of e-bikes is a barrier to entry. This research explores techniques to develop and structure e-bike incentive programs to reduce that barrier. He is also working on an in-progress "Mobility by E-Bike Study" which is still recruiting e-bike rider participants for help with data collection.
