Aleksander Jagiełło

Abstract

The aim of the article is to present preferences and transport behaviour of cyclists in Gdynia. Conducting research in this regard allows the local authorities to develop bicycle transport in a way that is adjusted to the expectations of users, while raising the chances of increasing the participation of bicycles in the daily travels of Gdynia inhabitants in general. The results presented in the article clearly indicate that the development of bicycle transport is beneficial not only for cyclists, but also for the society. The research shows how important it is for the life comfort of residents of cities to convince them to give up cars in favour of bicycles to the greatest extent possible. The discussion on this topic is upgraded also by the present situation presented in the article, where in general, a low participation of this means of transport which is consistent with the policy of sustainable mobility development of Gdynia inhabitants is observable.
