Public bike-sharing system has grown very rapidly in Asian countries. Seoul started the first IT-based public bike-sharing service (named Ddareungi) in October 2015. Since then, the number of rental stations, bicycles, and usage have increased constantly. As the usage of public bike has greatly influenced by the location of the spatial characteristics around the rental station, Ddareungi has been installed mainly in residential or commercial areas. However, existing studies pay relatively little attention in exploring the determinants of usage from spatio-temporal perspective. This study tries to explore the relationship between spatial factors and bike ridership by using geographically weighted regression. This study found out the different types of bike-sharing usage patterns and its relationship with spatial factors of rental station.
