Book Description :

Cities around the world are implementing sustainable urban form policies to alter mobility patterns. In this book, we reframe these policies as 'multimodal accessible city' policies, emphasising accessibility as an important additional explanatory variable of travel behaviour. We focus our research on polycentric urban development policy, which can be seen as a feasible sustainable urban form policy to large cities and metropolitan areas. We found car commuting and public transport commuting to be phenomena explained by different variables, in which car commuting is mainly a socio-economic driven phenomenon, while public transport commuting is mainly a land-use driven phenomenon. However, the analysis of commuting impacts resulting from the relocation of workers and residents points to a negligible commuting impact on residents, who are mainly car commuters, but a negative impact on the commuting patterns of workers, whose car usage has significantly increased as a result of the workplace relocation. Therefore, we argue that polycentric urban development is an important urban policy, but not sufficient, to achieve the desired sustainable commuting patterns.

Book Description :

This thesis discusses the relationship between urban form and accessibility to fresh food in Montreal. Anchored in the disciplines of urban morphology and retail geography, it mobilizes GIS-based spatial and network analysis, as well as methods for measuring travel times by transportation modes. Establishments selling fresh fruits and vegetables are used as a proxy for healthy and nutritious food retailing. A three-pronged analysis is performed that looks into the establishments’ spatial distribution; the physical and spatial characteristics of their surroundings; and their accessibility by active and collective transportation modes. A morphological approach reveals fine spatial articulations between retail location and specific characteristics and properties of the urban system, including its transportation infrastructures. The importance of accessibility to fresh food on public health cannot be over-emphasized. Furthermore, a supply system that reduces automobile dependence is a crucial step towards social and environmental sustainability and equitability.

Book Description :

Despite extensive efforts to understand the overall effect of urban structure on the current patterns of urban mobility, we are still far from a consensual perspective on this complex matter. To help build agreement on the factors influencing travel behaviour, this book discusses the influence of alternative urban structures on sustainable mobility. Bringing together two existing and complementary methods to study the relationship between urban structure and mobility, the authors compare two case studies with distinct urban structures and travel behaviour (Copenhagen and Oporto). Of particular concern is the influence of urban structure factors, namely land use and transport system factors, and motivational factors related to the social, economic and cultural characteristics of the individual traveller. The research presented in this book highlights the relevance of centrality in travel behaviour and in more sustainable travel choices. Different operational forms of the centrality concept are revealed as important: it is shown that more sustainable travel can be influenced by several urban structure factors and that no particular combination is required as long as a certain level of centrality is provided. Finally, the book concludes that urban structure can, on the one hand, constrain and, on the other hand, influence travel choice.

Book Description :

By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. To thrive, they will need efficient and sustainable forms of transport, but to achieve this, the financial incentives guiding urban transport operation must change – and change rapidly. Urban transport plays a critical role in determining the social, environmental and economic shape of cities. Improving Urban Access: New Approaches to Funding Transport Investment provide innovative ideas on how we might reorganize transport finance to ensure that it is suited to serving the social, environmental and economic principles that must guide future urban living. Continuing the work begun by its predecessor, Urban Access for the 21st Century, the authors assess the complexity of implementing new finance approaches and suggest ways to make positive and radical changes. Although the range of revenue raising options remain limited to users, indirect beneficiaries, and the general public, these can be recast to transform the way transport is paid for and therefore how its services are delivered. New finance models only succeed when they are intrinsically linked to the economic, social, cultural and political forces that create urban life. Together these volumes provide a starting point for the deeper research and policy design needed to successfully create urban transport finance systems that can address the challenges that 21st century cities present.

Modeling Urban Dynamics

Book Description :

The field of Urban Dynamics itself is based on the systems engineering concept that all complex systems (and cities and urban areas are no exception) are comprised of independent and often smaller, more understandable sub-components with relationships to one another. This allows for the system as a whole to be modeled, using knowledge of the individual subsystems and their behaviors. In this instance, urban dynamics allows for the modeling and understanding of land use, the attractiveness of space to residents, and how the ageing and obsolescence of buildings affects planning and economic development, as well as population movements, with the urban landscape. The book adopts a trans-disciplinary approach that looks at the way residential mobility, commuting patterns, and travel behavior affect the urban form. It addresses a series of issues dealing with the accessibility of urban amenities, quality of life, and assessment of landscape residential choices, as well as measurement of external factors in the urban environment and their impact on property values.

Book Description :

Cities are places of opportunity. They provide not just jobs but a whole range of public, cultural, social and consumption amenities. Transport is what connects people to these opportunities and cities provide access with varying degrees of success – especially when it comes to modes of transport that favour a green transition. This report argues that building sustainable transport networks for accessible cities requires a holistic planning approach, a sound institutional framework, reliable sources of funding, strong governmental capacity, and should build on community engagement.

Book Description :

The study of crime has focused primarily on why particular people commit crime or why specific communities have higher crime levels than others. In The Criminology of Place, David Weisburd, Elizabeth Groff, and Sue-Ming Yang present a new and different way of looking at the crime problem by examining why specific streets in a city have specific crime trends over time. Based on a 16-year longitudinal study of crime in Seattle, Washington, the book focuses our attention on small units of geographic analysis-micro communities, defined as street segments. Half of all Seattle crime each year occurs on just 5-6 percent of the city's street segments, yet these crime hot spots are not concentrated in a single neighborhood and street by street variability is significant. Weisburd, Groff, and Yang set out to explain why. The Criminology of Place shows how much essential information about crime is inevitably lost when we focus on larger units like neighborhoods or communities. Reorienting the study of crime by focusing on small units of geography, the authors identify a large group of possible crime risk and protective factors for street segments and an array of interventions that could be implemented to address them. The Criminology of Place is a groundbreaking book that radically alters traditional thinking about the crime problem and what we should do about it.
