Researches indicate that the use of bicycles as a means of transportation and form of recreation is increasing in cities in the world’s developed countries, and that it brings with it a humanization of urban spaces and improved quality of life. Bicycle use has rarely been the topic of scholarly interest in Zagreb or Croatia as a whole, especially among student population. Therefore, a survey was conducted among students of the University of Zagreb to gauge their expectations of bicycle use and other forms of transport in Zagreb. The questioning encompassed 238 student cyclists and 359 student non-cyclists, selected by a combination of representative and focused sampling. The results point toward significant statistical discrepancies between the two student groups in their manner of using bicycles and other means of transport. Furthermore, student expectations of the city government encompass, besides anticipated measures to improve the cycling infrastructure, a series of other measures, such as, for example, subsidies for bicycle purchases and the introduction of a public bicycle sharing system. The conclusion includes six proposals for activities aimed at increasing the number of bicycle users to be undertaken by the city government and other interested parties.
