Sustainable Mobility in Urban Regions: What are the Highest-Priority Needs?
Cities and their outskirts accommodate high concentrations of transportation flows, in terms of passengers and freight, which remain quite distinct in both their scope and frequency: major transit flows, intercity exchanges, daily mobility patterns. This article will primarily focus on day-to-day mobility concerns in France, but the first step of such an analysis entails specifying the investigation boundary: how far does the city exert its influence over daily transportation habits?
- Sustainable mobility in urban regions: What exactly is the study boundary?
- Mobility of the French population
- Transportation modes as a function of distance categories
- An increasing disconnect between home and workplace
- The disconnect between place of residence and place of work also creates suburb-to-suburb transportation problems
