    Abstract

    The lack of parking spaces for bicycles is oneof the main issues that many cities face. A proper planning ofa bike station network is necessary in order to optimize thewhole urban system and the transport supply. In this work astep-by-step analysis is proposed to find the best location forthe bicycle lots in the old town of Palermo. The optimizationmethod includes the use of both a Set Covering Model anda Maximum Coverage Location Problem. The dataset forthe simulations was collected by direct and indirect surveyson the population and implemented into Open source GISsoftware. In particular, data on the destinations, times anddistances covered by the bicycles’ users were included. Finally,a cost-benefit analysis was made after a sizing phase ofthe lots. The proposed methodology can be applied to othercontexts without loss of generality. It can also be used for theex-post evaluation of an already existing network.
