Abstract
All over the world, administrators are looking to implement transportation systems that are sustainable in the long run as the present transportation systems are non-sustainable.

The current paper aims to present the willingness and perceptions of people in Erode city, study area considered for the present research towards implementing a public bicycle sharing system using a questionnaire survey technique. The survey results indicated that 82% of the respondents were willing to use the public bicycle sharing system if it implemented in the study area and 63.2% of the respondents wanted to access the bicycle stations within 250m to 500m. 78 bicycle stations selected within the study area were able to cover 28.52sq.km of the study area considering a buffer analysis distance of 500m from the bicycle stations. The results of the study can be used as a primary planning tool for implementing a successful public bicycle sharing system in the study area.
