Call for papers for a virtual special issue at Transportation Research Part D on the Topic :“Planning for Accessibility”
Hansen defined accessibility as “the potential of opportunities for interactions” in 1959. It measures the ease of reaching various destinations including residences, workplaces, services, amenities and so on. Governments implement various land use and transportation policies to facilitate the interactions between people and firms. Accordingly, accessibility plays a fundamental role in affecting how individuals and households choose their residential locations and activity destinations, and where firms choose to establish their businesses. These choices in turn influence the performance of land use and transportation systems.
During the past several decades, government policies in many countries have gradually evolved from automobile-centered mobility planning toward accessibility-oriented planning. However, because different governments prioritize different goals towards sustainability, accessibility planning has been operationalized differently in different parts of the world. In addition, the influences of accessibility on individuals’ choices and firms’ choices are also evolving over time, partly because of the deeper penetration of the internet and shared mobility in the 21stcentury. Autonomous vehicles are also likely to change the meanings and perceptions of accessibility, and the strategies for accessibility planning.
