Due to the dilemma of bike-sharing concerning its benefits and drawbacks, and its unclear future, we focused on a mixed-methods approach to analyze this public discussion through posts or "tweets" from the social media channel Twitter. We collected around 12,000 tweets in English around the world related to bike-sharing for a period of about six mo...

The numbers of electric vehicles (EV) will increase as many countries perceive EVs as a solution to reduce the emissions of transportation and therefore incentivize their adoption. However, the deployment of public charging infrastructure is lagging behind that of EVs, which represents a potential barrier to the wide-scale adoption. The objective o...

How fair is the allocation of the infrastructure of a bike-sharing system (BSS)? Design guidelines for BSSs focus on optimizing the demand but not on who is served who is not. Areas where mainly young Caucasians, highly educated people live, and that have high access to community resources, presented greater access to BSS. Based on the concept of s...

Using a lexicometric and qualitative data analysis of 57 semi-directed interviews with members of non-motorized households in the urban areas of Quebec City (Canada) and Strasbourg (France), this paper attempts to show whether living in a carless household in a car-dependent environment fosters feelings of social exclusion and if so, what the contr...

Lately, there has been a tendency in academia to call for more interdisciplinary research on sustainable mobility. However, there is a lack of empirical research on practiced interdisciplinarity. This paper seeks to address this by exploring the practices of an intended interdisciplinary doctoral research group. Specifically, it presents the study...

The social design approach presented in this chapter was developed to ensure that the new smart living lab building includes not only sus- tainable environmental and economic aspects, but also social aspects. By better understand- ing the preferences and attitudes of its future occupants and the three founding institutions, the team will be able to...
Conference Paper
Les villes occidentales sont développées autour de la mobilité automobile pouvant amener une forme de dépendance automobile. Dans une telle société, le fait de ne pas posséder de voiture peut même être lié à une forme d’exclusion sociale. Nous nous intéressons aux mobilités géographiques des individus provenant de ménages non motorisés à l’échelle...
Conference Paper
By the simple fact of not owning a private automobile, some households are already experiencing sustainable mobility. They rely on public transportation networks, cycling and car sharing and tend to travel less than car-owning households. However, current sustainable mobility policies often do not take into account these kinds of households, focuss...

Conference Paper
Les villes occidentales sont développées autour de la mobilité automobile pouvant amener une forme de dépendance automobile (Dupuy, 1999; Graham & Marvin, 2001; Newman & Kenworthy, 1989). Dans une telle société, le fait de ne pas posséder de voiture peut même être lié à une forme d’exclusion sociale (RAC, 1995; Schönfelder & Axhausen, 2003). Nous n...

To understand why all new light rail transit (LRT) projects under development in Canada are carried out in public-private partnership (P3) rather than through the traditional mode (public administration) that prevailed in the past, this research explores three light rail projects currently underway in Edmonton, Ottawa and Toronto. We study the argu...

Afin de comprendre pourquoi tous les nouveaux projets de tramways en cours de développement au Canada sont réalisés en mode partenariat public-privé (PPP) plutôt que grâce au mode traditionnel (gestion publique) utilisé par le passé, cette recherche porte sur trois projets de tramways présentement en cours de réalisation (Edmonton, Ottawa et Toront...

This scoping review aims to draw an up-to-date portrait of the abundant literature on modal shift in order to synthesize it and present it in an organized manner. The main objective is therefore divided into five specific sub-objectives linked to the challenges of modal shift, namely i) the habits anchored in the daily life of motorists; ii) values, preferences, and lifestyles; iii) the impact of economic levers such as public transport pricing or the externalities of automobility; iv) the effects of the supply of public transport and the spatial distribution of its infrastructure; and v) effects related to land use planning and residential locations.

1. Document car dependence and compare its prevalence in different regions of North America and Europe and analyze the public policies related to it to explain why the social dimension of mobility is neglected in policy making and its effects underestimated. 2. Increase knowledge on the situation of non-motorized households to better understand their perceptions vis-à-vis car dependence and the potential social exclusion related to it, while getting an understanding of their daily mobility practices and expectations of public authorities as well as investigating gender- based differences. 3. Develop a geographic information system (GIS) based car-dependence indicator associated with maps of the studied urban areas which could be used in policy and land-planning decision-making to favour a reduction of mobility related social exclusion and an attenuation of car-dependence.
