The bikesharing systems are one of the most interesting and dynamically developing concepts of the sharing economy. The paper presents the idea of bikesharing along with its current state in the world and in Poland. A cluster analysis is performed to classify the bikesharing systems in Poland, and lastly an analysis is performed to verify the relations between the development of the bikesharing systems and the public expenditures.
