Keywords: urban structure indicators, travel behaviour, different socio-economic contexts, sustainable urban transport planning, land use, street network, public transport


Since urban structure indicators influence travel behaviour, they have been widely studied. The goal of these studies was identifying effective factors to have sustainable transport patterns. However, investigating these factors has been problematic and the results are not reliable enough to be used universally. There are two main reasons for this:firstly, because socio-economic indicators impact neighbourhoods with comparable design differently; and secondly, factors such as income, and age, as well as self-selection factors are not easy to be evaluated. This paper addresses challenges and practices in this area to propose new objectives for further studies that cover previous shortcomings.
