Article
Full-text available
Bike-sharing is widely recognized as an eco-friendly mode of transportation and seen as one of the solutions to the problem of air pollution and congestion. As there is little research exploring the performance of bicycle-sharing systems (BSS), many municipal authorities invest in their development without knowledge of their effectiveness. Therefor...

New, shared mobility modes, including dockless e-scooters and e-bikes, were recently introduced to many cities around the world. The aim of this article is to determine the differences between the users of e-bike sharing, and e-scooter sharing systems, and the characteristics of their travel behaviour. This study is based on the survey of the citiz...
Article
Full-text available
Electrically assisted bicycles are anticipated to become an effective tool to limit not only the use of cars in cities but also their negative impact on health, the environment, and passenger transportation in cities. In this paper, we examine the effects of implementing the first fully electric bike (e-bike) sharing system in the Metropolitan Area...
Article
In hopes of reducing traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, and energy consumption, bike sharing is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Underlying many of the benefits attributed to bike sharing is an assumption that bike share journeys replace a significant proportion of trips previously made by car. This paper examines factors c...
Article
Full-text available
Rising mobility of societies and the urban sprawl cause the need to shape passengers' behaviour accordingly. For urbanised areas, the biggest challenge is to overcome the problem of dominant private cars usage. Bike-sharing systems are considered to be a successful tool for the popularisation of alternative ways of travelling. Recently Chinese comp...

Full-text available
Estymacja ekonomicznej wartości czasu w transporcie pasażerskim nie jest celem samym w sobie – ma służyć zwiększaniu świadomości o wartości czasu nadmiernie lub niepotrzebnie traconego, a w dalszej kolejności motywować do poszukiwania sposobów na redukcję kosztów strat czasu generowanych podczas podróży. Problemami badawczymi rozstrzyganymi w monog...
Article
Full-text available
New generation of bike-sharing systems introduce a wide range of smart solutions. Dockless bicycles equipped with GPS and accessible by smartphone applications as well as electric bikes are considered to be solutions to many socioeconomic and environmental urban problems. However, older generation of bike-sharing systems equipped with dockings stat...
Article

This paper deals with key issues arising when transport is confronted with chaotic socio-economic environments. Nowadays especially urbanised areas are facing some crucial issues concerning urban planning under conditions of spatial chaos. Transport, having an important role in connecting the space of social and economic life, is a mean to reduce s...
Article
Full-text available
Nowadays the time factor is perceived as an increasingly valuable economic resource for societies. The role of the economic value of time in shaping passenger transport behaviour is considered to be significant because the knowledge of costs related to excessive time loss during travel is an important factor affecting consumer decisions in the tran...
Article

The comparative analysis of the manners of organising and integrating public transport in selected metropolitan areas in Poland shows weaknesses and strengths of these applied manners, especially organizational solutions u...
Article
Full-text available
Pojęcie wartości jest bardzo pojemne, a z perspektywy nauk ekonomicznych wartość definiuje się najczęściej jako materialną, czyli mającą swój odpo-wiednik w pieniądzu. Wyznaczanie wartości ekonomicznej nazywane jest wyceną, która nie jest procesem łatwym jeżeli dotyczy czynnika czasu nie mającego odpowiedników w postaci wartości rynkowych. Ekonomic...
Article
Full-text available
Wycena ekonomicznej wartości czasu w transporcie to istotny element współczesnej ekonomiki transportu. Druga połowa XX wieku to czas, w którym badania skoncentrowane na próbach takiej wyceny zaczęły na stałe wpisywać się w ekonomiczną teorię użyteczności krańcowej, a analizy oparte o metodę preferencji wyrażonych i ujawnionych stały się źródłem wie...
Article
Time is a necessary factor in processes of transportation. The economic value of travel time is the opportunity cost of the time spent on journey, so the reduction of travel time becomes the main goal of transport network users. Travel time losses in passenger transport are frequently observed in crowded cities, which are facing different types of...

Project
Rozprawa doktorska - podstawowym celem jest zbadanie roli czynnika wartości czasu w transporcie pasażerskim z wielu perspektyw. Ekonomiczna wartość czasu jako przedmiot badań w naukach ekonomicznych to z drugiej strony narzędzie badań i ocen ekonomicznych. Doctoral thesis - the aim of the dissertation is to investigate the economic value of time and its role in passenger transport. It is to show VOT (value of time) as a subject of study in economics as well as research and evaluation tool.
