Bicycle-Sharing Systems are emerging as alternative modes of transportation, successfully combining product and service aspects similar to those of other Product-Service Systems. Since such systems are influenced by a number of factors during their operation, identifying ways to manage the dynamic complexity during the operational phase is desirable. In this paper, we present an approach using agent-based modeling in combination with data analytics of system usage data to analyze the impact system architecture changes would have on overall system behavior.
