In view of the newly emerged travel pattern of bike sharing, questionnaire survey, intention investigation, and statistical analysis are used to study the trip characteristics of shared bikes. The results showed that beceause bicycle charing is convenient, time saving and with unfixed borrow location, most people choose sharing bicycle as the travel mode instead of choosing public bicycles, private bicycles and walking.
