1 Introduction Potential and cumulative accessibility are important issues in transport and socio-economic research. As regards research on accessibility of workplaces, these measures have been used in many scientific studies ( Hansen, 1959 ; Harris, 1954 ; Vickerman, 1974 ; Geurs, Ritsema Van Eck, 2001 ; Geurs, Van Wee, 2004 ). Both potential and cumulative accessibility concentrate on people and are directly related to their functioning during the day. Commuting plays an important role in society, especially for people of working age. Commuting is the most

Introduction Access to all kinds of goods and services is very important in daily life. Sometimes it determines human health or even life itself. However, one should keep in mind that different types of resources are not distributed equally. As a result, people must move to acquire them, so it can be concluded that the possibility of moving in geographical space directly affects human life and that the accessibility of transport may be one of the determinants of living standards. The term “accessibility” is frequently used. However, researchers understand this

Introduction Public transport plays an important role in the functioning of every large city. It facilitates the flow of people and goods and connects the strategic areas of housing, labour, commerce or entertainment ( Cervero et al. 2004 ). Cities cannot develop properly when the relationships between those areas are not satisfactory ( Sanchez & Brenman 2007 ). Public transport accessibility is a key factor to the stable operation of the whole system that the city creates. It is generally understood as the ease of access to the means of transport and the ease of

Introduction Cities are spatial regions with a varying number of inhabitants. Some areas in the city lose population over time while other parts of the city are growing rapidly, affecting its spatial structure and accessibility to different types of services. Often when new residential areas are developed, especially in countries and cities without effective spatial planning, they lack basic public facilities such as kindergartens, schools, health care units or libraries. Libraries, which will be the special focus of this paper, are site-preferred facilities

Introduction Spatial accessibility is one of the fundamental problems of geography, and transport geography in particular ( Weber 2006 ). It determines how easy it is to reach certain places ( Burdziej 2016 ), thus it is one of the key factors affecting the ability of the citizens of a given area to use certain services ( Kwan & Weber 2008 ). It is argued that better accessibility reduces the time spent on commuting ( Osborne 2014 ), which in turn means lower costs of living and improved quality of life and the environment ( Doi et al. 2008 ; Lotfi & Koohsari
