To promote sustainable urban development, transport policies need to change from a car-oriented mobility planning paradigm to an accessibility-based paradigm, integrating land-use and transport policies. In this paper we examined the dominant transport planning paradigm of 172 Dutch municipalities based on a conceptual framework with 24 mobility and accessibility planning criteria. We show that the mobility planning paradigm still dominates Dutch municipal transport planning. However, we do find indications of slow change in the transport planning paradigms in Dutch municipalities.
