Forme urbaine et mobilité domicile–travail dans 13 aires urbaines françaises : une analyse multiéchelle


  • Le Néchet, F.

This article provides a multi-scale analysis of the links between commuting patterns and urban form by using both morphological and more classical indicators of urban form (like density). Thirteen French urban areas of more than 500,000 inhabitants (excluding Paris) are compared. The findings highlight the complexity of the links between urban form and commuting patterns because the same indicators of urban form do not have the same influence according to the spatial scale. Even if the influence of the morphological indicators is lower than that of more classical socio-economic variables (income level, motorization rate), our study discusses the various and multi-scale consequences of urban development on daily travel behaviour.
