From November 2020 until February 2021, TInnGO WP7 “Data analysis and modelling”, led by the Portuguese company VTM, ran a survey to explore mobility patterns in different European cities.
This study aims to explore the effects that the intrinsic/ socio-economic/ background characteristics of individuals have on the way they move and how it affects their ability to integrate into society and access employment opportunities. Therefore, the role of the transport system in different environments is being explored. The way in which the transport system affects individuals with different attributes, and the impact of these on perceptions and evaluations of the transport system will be analysed.
The objective of this survey is to understand, for the ten hub countries involved in this project:
- the main drivers of mobility for different groups in terms of age, gender and diversity (AGD);
- commuters’ choices, particularly women in different metropolitan areas with distinct transport systems;
- the impact of personal characteristics and daily activities in the choice of transport modes, including, for example, constraints in terms of physical access to services;
- how each transport system affects women’s mobility behaviour;
- the perception of different AGD groups regarding new transport policies, technologies, and services.
Following an intersectional approach, the outcome will be sustainable Gender Smart Mobility Plans seeking to engage different AGD groups in the ten metropolitan areas analysed for policymakers and transport planners.
Below you will find the results collected from four cities: Turin (Italy), Thessaloniki (Greece), Valencia (Spain) and Paris (France). The results for each case study are based on at least 400 responses.
A second batch of results from Copenhagen and some Swedish cities (Denmark & Sweden), Vilnius and other cities in the Baltic countries (Baltic countries), Hannover (Germany) and Lisbon (Portugal) will be published before the end of September 2021. A third batch containing the results from Alba lulia (Romania) and West Midlands (Northampton, Coventry, and Birmingham – United Kingdom) will be made available in the following months.
