While it’s accepted that mixed-use development promotes active travel, researchers don’t have a consensus on exactly how land use determines people’s travel patterns.
The research examined:
- The relationship between pedestrian travel and land use mix;
- The impact of land use mix on pedestrian travel;
- How operationalizing land use mix influences individual travel behavior
This work contributes theoretical and empirical tools for research and practice in transportation and land use planning.
