Characteristic Analysis of Non-Motorized Transport in High-Density Metropolitan Areas in China: A Case Study in Guangzhou

Taking densely populated Guangzhou, the 3rd biggest city in China, as an example, the demand and operation data was collected by a questionnaire survey and field observations, respectively. Next, the characteristics of non-motorized transport were analyzed from both the macroscopic and microscopic views. At the macroscopic level, the fundamental demand characteristics, such as travel purpose, frequency and distance, and the mode choice features, such as travel mode, duration, and intention, were investigated, while at the microscopic level, traffic flow and speed were observed and analyzed. Finally, the relationships among non-motorized transport characteristics, land use and facilities are studied. Finally, several problems related to the development of non-motorized transport in metropolitan areas were discussed and some key points that should be considered are presented.
