Because of the energy shortage, environmental pollution, and global warming, people start to realizes the issues of conserving energy and reducing carbon emission. One of options is to think of a new transfer mode in short distance which based on eco-awareness and efficiency. Depending on zero pollution, low energy consumption, and healthy fitness, bicycling has become a popular vehicle which easily combining with the public transfer system. Due to that bicycling brings the positive impression of environmental protection, health concerning, tourism, and family gathering, and has the government’s strong promotion, the number of bicycling population has been rapidly increasing in Taiwan. A new kind of lifestyle known as LOHAS prevails along with the increased population of bicyclists. However, most people still see bicycling as a recreation instead of a daily transportation. To actually live up to the spirit of LOHAS, one should stop driving to work and start riding a bicycleortaking public transportation. In this way, it may efficiently reduce the heavy traffic during rush hours from Monday to Friday while also improving the air quality. Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT) in Taiwan is highly concentrated and available in Taipei city. In our project, it tries to collect and analyze the commute situation in Taipei, learns from other cities which already have well-constructed bicycle commute system, and makes the proper adaptation. Under the structure of “consolidating people's willing to use bicycle for commuting,” the main idea of the project is to find a appropriate design method to solidify people's needs. In the meanwhile, this project intends to integrate further technology as well as Taiwanese topnotch bicycle industry, to come up with a systematic design solution, and hopefully the private cars/scooters and the damage of global warming can be reduced. The ultimate goal is to make people take "using bicycles to commute" as a right thing, amplify this though, and influence others to achieve the idea of sustainable operation.
