Recensioner i media
'Drawing on a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches, this book provides a detailed, accessible, comparative account of mobility patterns and urban structure in Oporto and Copenhagen. Its conclusions are resounding: urban structure not only passively influences travel choices, it also actively constrains choices. This has important implications for the role of urban and regional planning in promoting low-carbon development in cities.' Dominic Stead, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands 'This is a book you want to read if you are interested in linkages between built environment, accessibility and travel behaviour. It applies a unique mixed method approach, in which accessibility instruments and quantitative and qualitative travel behaviour research are applied in two European cities - Oporto and Copenhagen. Paulo Pinho and Cecilia Silva clearly show that urban structure influences travel behaviour and accessibility, and confirm that effective coordination between transport and land use policies is a requirement for achieving more sustainable mobility patterns.' Karst T. Geurs, University of Twente, The Netherlands 'By contrasting the polycentric Greater Oporto with the monocentric Greater Copenhagen and examining both accessibility and travel behaviour, Pinho and Silva successfully make the case for why any policy for sustainable mobility must act on the key factor of urban structure.' Carey Curtis, Curtin University, Australia
