  1. 21. Clusters of urban crime and safety in transport nodes

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Adriaan Cornelis Uittenbogaard; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; safety; urban crime; space-time clusters; crime concentrations; GIS; environmental attributes; public transport; underground stations; transport nodes; crime prevention;

    Abstract : The objective of the thesis is to provide a better understanding of the safety conditions inurban environments, particularly related to those found in transport nodes, in this case,underground stations, and surrounding areas1. First, the study starts with an analysis of theoverall city, identifying concentrations of crime in the urban fabric and then focusing on thecriminogenic conditions at and around underground stations.

  2. 22. Car Users' Switching to Public Transport for the Work Commute

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Lars Eriksson; Karlstads universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Car-use Reduction; Work Commute; Public Transport; Experimental Simulation; Satisfaction with Travel; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The general aim of the present thesis was to investigate the determinants of car users’ switching to public transport when driving to work. Since the quality of services is particularly low in medium-sized cities, making the car a much more attractive option, the studies focus on car-use in such cities.Four studies were conducted.

  3. 23. Transport mobility for children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP)

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : T Falkmer; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Child; adolescents; cerebral palsy; public health; legislation; prevalence; mobility; transport; risk; driving; education; eye movements; screening; visual perception; test;

    Abstract : Background: The transport mobility of children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP) is of vital interest for the individual, as well as for society. Enhanced transport mobility can be related to improved functional health status and a higher degree of autonomy, which in turn may reduce the demand for societal support. READ MORE

  4. 24. Congestion Effects in Transport Modelling and Forecasting

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jens West; KTH.; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Transport investments and policies are increasingly turned towards dealing with transport congestion rather than with shortening the potential free flow travel time. However, appraisal methodologies for projects meant to reduce congestion are relatively less well developed compared to methodologies for projects aiming to reduce travel times. READ MORE

  5. 25. Evaluation of bus priority strategiesin coordinated traffic signal systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Wahlstedt; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bus priority; public transport priority; transit priority; PTSP; TSP; traffic signal; traffic signal control; traffic signal control systems; self-optimising signal control; PRIBUSS; SIL simulation; traffic simulation; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Increasing congestion and environmental concerns have evoked an interest in promoting urban Public Transport (PT) the last decades. In 2012 the City of Stockholm adopted an “Urban mobility strategy” stating that public transport, cycling and walking should be prioritised over cars in central Stockholm. READ MORE
