Research TP

The chair in Transport Planning (prof. dr. ing. Karst T. Geurs) focuses on research relevant for the development, evaluation and assessment of transport policies and infrastructures. A first research focus is on the temporal dynamics in travel behavior using panel surveys (the Mobility Panel for the Netherlands) and smartphone-based data collection tools allowing analysis of intrapersonal and interpersonal variations in mobility patterns. A second research focus is land-use and transport interactions, in particular accessibility analysis and modeling. A third research focus is on the development, testing and evaluation of emerging mobility innovations, such as Mobility-as-a-Service platforms in rural and urban settings.
