Abstract:

This hands-on workshop will explore the different methods to explore transport related decisions using attendant-chosen examples. They could be: mode choice in the presence of new services, shopping location choice, design of mobility hubs, etc. After a brief introduction into the range of approaches, the workshop will focus on the design of possible surveys.


About the Speaker:

Dr. K.W. Axhausen is Professor of Transport Planning at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich. Before he worked at the Leopold-Franzens Universität, Innsbruck, Imperial College London and the University of Oxford. He has been involved in the measurement and modelling of travel behaviour for the past 35 years contributing especially to the literature on stated preferences, micro-simulation of travel behaviour, accessibility, valuation of travel time and its components, parking behaviour, activity scheduling and travel diary data collection. Current work focuses on the agent-based micro-simulation toolkit MATSim (see www.matsim.org)


Registration and Fee:

This workshop is free of charge! Places are limited & prior registration is required. Priority will be given to Geography students, MATPP students, ITS Student Fellows and students with relevant study background. Each participant attending the entire workshop (minimum: Part I and II) will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance. For MATPP students, this workshop is not credit-bearing but it will count towards the seminar requirement of GEOG7011. Complete the Registration Form and return to Miss Tracy Tsoi at tsoit@hku.hk.

JOINTLY ORGANISED BY: Institute of Transport Studies, HKU and Unviversity College London


ABSTRACT:

Rapidly increasing urbanisation rates present significant mobility challenges for cities across the world, given commitments to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. A growing number of high income cities are attempting to constrain and reduce traffic levels and move towards sustainable mobility and liveability, while rapidly growing cities in Global South countries are faced with the stark choice of repeating the mistakes of many of the cities in so-called ‘developed’ countries, or moving more directly to transport systems which follow principles of sustainable mobility and liveability. This symposium brings together leading researchers in the UK and in Hong Kong who will share recent research on the different potential pathways and impacts for sustainable mobility and liveable cities, within this broader socio-demographic and cultural context.

There are three core themes:

  • Transition pathways to sustainable mobility

  • Impacts of new approaches

  • Towards liveable cities
