AbstractThe analysis covered the city bike rental system in Lublin and the development of the so-called Lublin City Bike (LRM) network. The LRM network was chosen due to its dynamic development, because Lublin has the most city bikes per capita in Poland. LRM was launched in June 2014. Since then, the Lublin City Bike consists of 951 bikes located in 97 rental stations in Lublin and Świdnik. The purpose of the present work is to analyse the development of city bike docking stations in Lublin against the background of economic and spatial conditions of the city. The analyses were performed using GIS software. The greatest interest in LRM was recorded in the central part of the city. It has been shown that the development of cycling infrastructure does not have a significant impact on the spatial coverage of Lublin City Bike. Developments planned until 2022 will also not significantly affect the extension of LRM coverage, as they are focused on increasing the density of stations. Furthermore, the location of the LRM stations is not related to the population density in individual city districts.
