Bikes are becoming a trend, fashion or a great way to commute daily to work or to college especially for students and dynamic leaders.
BikeSpace is a Toronto based bike parking app solution developed and maintained by volunteers who provide input and verification of data. The tool has a very lucid 5 step process, using which anyone can anonymously upload the information of a parking spot which is not in the right shape, state or capacity. Then, this data gets verified by the BikeShare volunteers who eventually put the data on the map and finally it is available for everyone to see – the riders, the app developers and the administration.
The biggest advantage of BikeSpace is that it highlights the places which require maintenance or expansion. This way, any parking space which is not marked bad on BikeSpace is reliable for a rider to go to. If it’s not, the rider can contribute to the community’s data. In addition to the community driven initiative, the app also ensures complete anonymity and does not store any private data of the users placing complaints about parking spots.
Right now BikeSpace is a community driven initiative which is not working to profit anyone
At the core of it, BikeSpace will have great participation from its community of volunteers and strongly growing engagement with bike riders in the city of Toronto. All this engagement can be leveraged in several ways to create revenue streams
The app can help become an eBay for used bikes: Since it is a really engaging and trustworthy community of volunteers, the app can turn to an eBay for bikes and other biking accessories.With small commission from these trades, BikeSpace can actually remain operational or even help the wrecked parking spots get repaired.
Advertising: A more common way would be to leverage all the engagement by placing ads. The ads would be highly relevant for brand partnerships with bicycle manufacturers, spare part traders, bike repair shops and other places relevant to the bike riding market.
Brand Partnerships: The community leaders can partner with brands such as BikeSpace (bike sharing apps). A point based reward system can be created, which can later be redeemed on the bike sharing platform.
Although the existing model has none of the above mentioned characteristics since depends on a community driven model, the same community can help BikeSpace become a more self-reliant service which helps in not only spotting bike spaces with issues, but also help in servicing them.
