摘要:The worldwide rise of shared bicycle use has changed the way people travel. Here we analyze shared bicycle use from the perspective of the theory of planned behavior, and propose a model to investigate factors influencing shared bicycle usage in China. A total of 211 shared bicycle users selected from 28 provinces throughout China completed a self-reported survey. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used to delineate the pathway from shared bicycle usage. The SEM model demonstrated that: (1) shared bicycle use intention was significantly associated with four variables, namely travel attitude(beta = 0.491, t = 24.569), social norms(beta = 0.149, t = 6.771), travel habits(beta = 0.146, t = 7.226) and perceived behavioral control (beta = 0.190, t = 11.110); (2) shared bicycle use behavior was significantly affected by shared bicycle use intention(beta = 0.406, t = 15.936), and also by travel habits(beta = 0.320, t = 11.921); (3) shared bicycle use behavior was also affected by demographic variables (gender, age) and situational factors (distance). The conclusions of this study provide useful data for operators of bicycle services and government policy makers.
