Cycling traffic has been booming in urban agglomerations recently. This is due to the fact that using bicycles helps solve existing transport problems. The advantage is that it supports the limitation of the use of cars in city centers and thus reduces the negative impact of transport on the environment. It can be realized in various forms - using private bicycles or bike-sharing. Košice includes among cities where introducing bike-sharing is considered. Košice is a city that has its specific transport problems, whose partial solution may be to increase the support of cycling when one of the options is the introduction of a city bike-sharing system. The article offers a closer perspective at this issue in adaptation to real urban conditions. It introduces the possibility of introducing support for cycling traffic in the city of Košice based on the selection of suitable locations for building the stations and the subsequent evaluation of selected localities based on the determined criteria using the proportional index method.
