Spatiotemporal Diversifications of Urban Activities and Travels in Egaleo Municipality, Attica Region

This paper presents diversifications of systematic activities and correlated systematic travels, within 12 years a period. As systematic activities and correlated systematic travels are defined those urban activities and travels that are frequently repeated, have same start and end time, travels have same origin and destination, using same transport means and activities take place in the same spatial location. Data derive from qualitative questionnaire survey, Systematic Activities – Travels (SAT) Survey, specifically designed for easy and fast implementation, resulting to large volumes of data on systematic activities and correlated systematic travels characteristics. As 2004–2005 initial SAT Survey covered the Greater Athens Metropolitan Area and for the 2018 survey Egaleo was selected as a low income, high population density. Municipality facing the outcomes of Greece’s recent economic crisis. Egaleo is also a typical example of Metropolitan’s Area deprived western region. Research results indicate significant changes in transport mode choices, travels’ length and duration, as well as changes to activities’ participation, due to the economic recession. At the same time, the Metro Line 3 expansion and the operation of the new Egaleo Metro Station has a significantly positive impact in systematic activities participation choices, especially in the economic recession period.
