Abstract

The development of the Internet of Things and mobile technology is connecting people and cities and generating large volumes of geolocated and space-time data. This paper identifies patterns in the Lisbon GIRA bike-sharing system (BSS), by analyzing the spatiotemporal distribution of travel distance, speed and duration, and correlating with environmental factors, such as weather conditions. Through cluster analysis the paper finds novel insights in origin-destination BSS stations, regarding spatial patterns and usage frequency. Such findings can inform decision makers and BSS operators towards service optimization, aiming at improving the Lisbon GIRA network planning in the framework of multimodal urban mobility.
