CHAPTER 1 Mobility and
Accessibility
I. Definitions
There are different modes
of transportation.
o
In Montreal, the Origin-
Destination census (OD) is a census to
find out what modes people use.
A public transportation is called transit.
Mobility is travel. It’s the actual movement and potential
to move around. Can be measured in terms of distance and
speed.
There are different opportunities varying from one place to
another (people, goods, services). Mobility is used because
people are looking for something that is not found in the
current place.
oHigh levels of mobility are referred as hypermobility
and low levels of mobility are referred as
hypomobility.
Accessibility has a relation with mobility. It’s the ease
of which reaching destinations for the same reasons as
mobility (activities, opportunities available in other
locations other than the one at due point).
oThe ultimate goal of mobility is accessibility.
oThere are two types of accessibility:
Place accessibility, which is the most common
measure (measured in terms of location and
infrastructure)
Personal accessibility, which is measured in
terms of destinations that can be reached by
individual of population with defined
characteristics.
Proximity is the distance between locations and density is
its measure (usually the number of people over unit of land
area).
Traffic congestion occurs when there is a high demand of
transit over supplies available (high demand due to
scheduled activities).
oCongestion has a negative impact on mobility. It can
however have a positive impact on proximity, which
will therefore positively impact mobility.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
