Abstract: This analysis was developed in Manizales, Colombia. The main purpose of this research is to evaluate the influence of increasing the number of stations of a bike-sharing program using accessibility models and the benefits in terms of travel time for population. The travel time spent to arrive at a bike station is calculated, obtaining a spatial coverage represented by isochrones curves using the average speed by foot which is affected by the slope of the streets. In order to get an approach of the influence of the location of bike stations, the results are compared with the socioeconomic level of the city, evaluating which level is induced the most.
