ACCESSIBILITY AS A COMPOSITE LOCATION FACTOR FOR INDUSTRIES

BEREIKBAARHEID ALS VESTIGINGSPLAATSFAKTOR VOOR BEDRIJVEN - DE BEREIKBAARHEID VOOR HET PERSONEEL

The paper starts with a definition of the terms "accessibility" and "degree of accessibility". The degree of accessibility of a facility has been related to the benefits from and the costs (time, money, efforts) of the movements to be made by the (potential) users of that facility. The accessibility of firms and offices is a composition of four, interrelated, sub-accessibilities, respectively for workers and employees, for visitors, for goods and services, and for information. In this paper the first one has been worked out. In the first instance assumptions have been formulated with regard to the preferences of workers and employees for different aspects of home-to-work journeys (direction, length, means of transport). Based on these assumptions, hypotheses have been formulated, concerning the preferences of different types of firms and employees. The covering abstract for the conference is IRRD no. 215277. /TRRL/
