Analysis of Urban Transportation System Effect: Evaluating the Difference between Mobility and Accessibility in Orientation

The difference and relation between mobility and accessibility and their urban transportation system effect were analyzed in this paper. The evaluation pointed out that both mobility and accessibility could improve the system efficiency in transportation planning, but the accessibility orientation could provide better sustainability. Evaluation models of mobility and accessibility were built based on the Dijkstra algorithm. By using a GIS analysis tool, the model was applied to an illustration in Xi'an for verification and instantiation. The conclusion showed that the evaluation model of mobility and accessibility can formulate the urban transportation system's performance briefly and accurately. It was also determined that in different levels of urban space transportation system planning should consider the differences between mobility and accessibility.
