Evaluating cycling behaviour of Millennials in Vitoria-Gasteiz

One of the most exciting topics in recent literature is focused on the travel behaviour of Millennials. These ‘young adults’ promote a change towards the so-called soft modes, such as cycling, what could become an opportunity to facilitate the transition towards a more sustainable mobility paradigm. This study addresses the case study of Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain). Bicycle share in Vitoria-Gasteiz in 2014 was the highest of any Spanish city, increasing from 1.4% in 2002 to 12.3% in 2014. An exploratory analysis of the city’s last mobility survey (2014) allows us to analyse how cycling is perceived. The results show differences between Millennials (18-36 years old) and the rest of generational cohorts. Significant changes are not found in the context of cycling. It seems that cities cannot expect a large increase in rates of bicycle use simply due to generational changes.
