Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors highlight the wider economic benefits of transport infrastructure from the observed role of railroads and waterways in economic development, and identify the multiple causal mechanisms which link transport and economic growth such as market expansion, gains from trade, technological shifts, processes of spatial agglomeration and processes of innovation and commercialization of new knowledge in urban clusters.

Journal ArticleDOI
Ralph Buehler1
TL;DR: For instance, the authors empirically investigated determinants of transport mode choice in Germany and the USA and found that Americans living in dense, mixed-use areas, and close to public transport are more likely to drive than Germans living in lower density areas, with a more limited mix of land-uses, and farther from public transport.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, two segmentation approaches are used to identify gaps between different domains of individual travel behaviour and the varying role of attitudes for travel decisions. But the results demonstrate the usefulness and limitations of existing segmentation approach and underline the need for more complex and comprehensive mobility style frameworks as basis for measures aiming at behavioural change towards sustainable mobility.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigate the factors that influence distance traveled by individuals in Canadian urban areas, with a particular focus on three population segments thought to face the risk of mobility challenges: the elderly, low-income people, and members of single-parent households.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The results indicate that there were a number of pedestrian attributes considered important by pedestrians when walking including pavement cleanliness, safe crossing places, good connectivity and sense of security.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors explore mainstream trends and counter-trends in the development of spatial mobility in the Swedish population and explore the preconditions for social and environmental sustainability.

Journal ArticleDOI
Karen Lucas1
TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore the relationship between transport and social disadvantage in the development context, the key difference being that income poverty is absolute and where there is much lower access to both private and public transportation generally.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a comparative case study of Australia's two largest cities, Melbourne and Sydney, is presented, where the main finding is that cycling levels in Melbourne are roughly twice as high as in Sydney and have been growing three times as fast in recent years.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined the relationship between distance, speed and time in urban areas and the role of land use planning and development, and technology can play in encouraging new forms of travel in cities.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the relationship between street centrality and land use intensity in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is examined using GIS-based methods to transform data sets of centrality (at network nodes) and densities (in census tracts) to one unit for correlation analysis.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors bring together the evidence at three separate levels arguing that there are different impacts that must be investigated at different levels with appropriate methods at macroeconomic level, regional network effects can be identified, as can the impacts on the economy as measured through changes in output and productivity.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: An ArcGIS extension, named Activity Pattern Analyst (APA), is developed, to facilitate exploratory analysis of activity diary data and provides a space–time path based multi-level clustering method to investigate individual-level spatiotemporal patterns.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, two concepts of vertical control of the development process are proposed in this paper, beginning with Inside-Out, whereby inland intermodal terminals seek greater integration with their sea ports, often driven by public body intervention; Outside-In development is displayed by the conscious use of an inland node as a tool for sea port actors (whether port authorities or terminal operators) to expand their hinterland and capture discretionary cargo.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Wang et al. as discussed by the authors characterized the built environment in Beijing and established associations between built environment and activity-travel behavior in terms of car ownership, time spent for out-of-home activities, and daily trip frequencies and travel time.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the inter-regional impacts of upgraded British InterCity 125/225 on British economic geography over 30 years were investigated by using six study routes of London-outbound trains serving major railways stations in 26 local authorities.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors studied trip-making for social purposes, with a special focus on the demographic ageing factors, using social activity diary data, models are estimated to predict the number of social trips, the travel distance and mode of transport for social trips.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors present a strategic model for the movement of containers on a global scale in order to analyse possible shifts in future container transport demand and the impacts of transport policies thereon.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors report on a qualitative diary and interview study that explored the ways in which ICTs are being used by students aged 18-28 and part-time working mums.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, an analysis exploring self-reported measures of transport disadvantage and how these relate to social exclusion and well-being in Melbourne, Australia was presented. But, the authors did not consider the impact of selfreported transport problems on social exclusion.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined changes in residential and non-residential property prices around the newly built stations between 2001 and 2008 as well as the changes in the number of residents for the same station catchment areas.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigated the extent to which affective-symbolic and instrumental-independence psychological motives mediate effects of socio-demographic variables on daily car use in Sweden.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors analyzed the relation of accessibility by road and railway networks to population change between the years 1970-2007 in Finland and found that the accessibility of railway network was found to have affected the population change in the 1970s, when local level traffic reduced in the entire country, and in 2000-2007, following remarkable investments in longhaul transport.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a cluster analysis of 1700 Swiss railway stations relying solely on context factors is presented, and the results indicate that classification based on relevant demands and conditions given by context leads to clearly interpretable classes and supports multi-perspective strategic planning for railway stations.
