Pollution Externality versus Agglomeration Economies: Is Urban Toll a Relevant Environmental Tool? Using an urban economic model with an endogenous centre where agents freely choose land quantities, we prove to what extent policies aimed at abating pollution generated by working households’ commuting trips involve a better control of urban sprawl a...

In this article we seek to elaborate various sustainable mobility scenarios depending on heterogeneous geographical contexts. We use a multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) to assess 50 mobility offers, relying on an original two-step assessment method. In a first step, we use the diviz decision-aid tool to obtain a global score for every offer, o...

As an alternative to private car, rail accessibility is part of environmental policies. The effects of light or heavy rail have been widely covered by the literature in urban areas. High-speed rail accessibility has been extensively studied at national or regional scales as well. In-between, only few studies have considered commuter rail accessibil...

While sustainable land use planning ensures land preservation through urban compactness, liveable residential environments are commonly associated with low density levels. Analyzing the relationships between density and neighborhood satisfaction (as a measure for liveability) may therefore help urban planners to offer sustainable infill projects th...

Chapter
The introduction of automated vehicles (AV) in the market progresses before the stakeholders fully understand the capacity and the limitations of this complex technology. While this can be considered as a usual course of deployment of a new technology, future large-scale expansion of AV at the societal level makes public acceptance a key issue. One...

What does the ideal housing type look like? A 2015 online survey of individuals living in the Loire-Atlantique Département in France provided 1,134 interviews, which we analyze using a mixed-effect probit model. We look at the probability of living in the ideal housing type related to 28 variables of dwelling and respondent characteristics, density...

In the Ile-de-France region in France, the modal share of car in commuting trips is 42% (Source: Global Transport Survey, 2010), a much lower figure than the national average (70%). In this article, we use an original predictive tool (Entropy) that relies on multi-source input data to estimate the flows, modes, and socio-demographic characteristics...

In this article we propose a decision-aid tool for local authorities to plan and implement their transport policies. We set out sustainable-mobility scenarios that depend on the geographical contexts of different areas based on 50 mobility offers, including active modes, car-sharing, public transport, etc. To do so we appeal to a multi-criteria dec...

In this empirical article, we seek to reveal the effect of accessibility to passenger railway stations in land capitalization. The stakes are crucial, as urban development in many OECD countries has been built around the individual car, favoring sprawled cities. The proximity to a railway station may thus be sought by households engaged in a land a...

Chapter
In a smart city, urban and transport planning should be co-conducted harmoniously in order to create a new transit-supportive city. After defining our vision of smart mobility, we will present and analyse the links between the transport system, disruptive innovation, and the role of public policies in change management. In this chapter 7, we focus...

Innovative solutions have been implemented to promote sustainable mobility in urban areas. In the Nantes area (northwestern part of France), alternatives to single-occupant car use have increased in the past few years. In the urban area, there is an efficient public transport supply, including tramways and a “busway” (Bus Rapid Transit), as well as...

In this paper based on empirical microeconomic choices of households, we use the hedonic pricing method to define the urban form of Nantes Métropole. The number of Central Business Districts (CBDs) should guide the second generation of transport policies in agglomerations subject to the LAURE law (law on air and the rational use of energy). Thus, i...

Project
VEDECOM launched in May 2020 an opinion survey entitled "COVID-19 and mobility" . This survey was conducted by its research team dedicated to new mobility solutions. This unprecedented survey was carried out with a panel of more than 800 voluntary mobility users in France, including 300 experts. It concerns the period immediately following the first lockdown in France (May-June 2020). The objectives of the survey are: (1) to understand the effects of the pandemic on daily mobility; (2) to propose solutions that can be implemented quickly or in the longer term.
Project
Design, analyzing and evaluation of new solutions of mobility and shared energy. In particular : - Studying AV-based Services from operational, economic and social perspectives - Evaluating the economic relevance and business models of services using V2V and V2I - Exploring services coupling mobility of goods and persons - Assessment of the impact of a new shared mobility service (carsharing, carpooling, new app, etc.) on the existing modes. These sub-projects are based on business design, surveys and spatial simulation (agent-based modelling, etc.)
Project
CO-INCIT is a collaborative research project aiming at defining a proposition, then of a proof of concept of carpooling for commuting line in medium-density areas (suburbs). The concept foreshadows an innovative carpooling offer based on a list of monetary and psychological incentives to carpool for the driver. The carpooling offer should be as flexible as possible in order to enhance behavioral change and best adapt to all the driver profiles’ requests and allow him.her to choose according to his.her preferences at each stage of the trip, while offering a reward in the end. Three methodological phases are provided in order to enrich the carpooling concept: (1) individual interviews of previously carpooling and non-carpooling drivers, (2) focus groups, and (3) quantitative validation by an online questionnaire.
