The city as a driver of new mobility patterns, cycling and gender equality: travel behaviour trends in Stockholm 1985-2015
() and Maria Börjesson
Abstract: We analyse changes in individual travel behaviour in
Stockholm County over 30 years, using three large cross-sectional travel
survey data sets. We show how travel patterns diverge over time between
city, suburban and rural residents. We relate these diverging travel
patterns to changes in the labour market, ICT use and the digital/knowledge
economy, land-use and transport policy, increased gender equality, and
population size, composition and location.
