Mobility studies Go Back
For feasible and sustainable spatial planning, it is essential to consider mobility through different spatial scales (buildings, villages, urban districts, cities, regions, states and international scale) as well as different modes including public transport, walking and cycling. One cannot only look at car travel data and its mathematical prognosis, as much of the actual daily trips will be neglected this way.
Hendrikson & Ko focuses on the whole spectrum of people’s mobility in mobility studies, mobility plans and travel plans by looking at everyday needs for travel like home, work, childcare, school, shopping etc. This is done in accordance with goals either through analysing today’s movements or through analysis of future potentials.
Knowledge of current needs and future potentials of urban functionality allows to better predict and steer future changes in travel behaviour, considering also daily and seasonal variations and propose necessary measures for planning liveable urban spaces and better mobility management.
