Passengers transport modes hierarchy and trends in cities: results of a worldwide survey

This paper has two goals. Firstly, it seeks to compare urban passenger transport mode shares across different regions of the world using a more detailed typology of transport modes than in most existing surveys. Indeed global travel data take no account of the diversity of current transport methods and generally distinguish between only three broad categories of transport mode: private motorized, non-motorized and public transport. However, actual travel behaviour are far more diverse, encompassing moto-taxis, auto-rickshaws (Singh, 2006), car sharing (Katzev, 2003), electric cars, electric bikes (Cherry and Cervero, 2007), etc. Secondly, the paper raises the question of medium-term changes regarding travel behaviour. We question both the potential changes in the nature of transport means over the next ten to twenty years and urban transport modal shift in the regions of the World.
