A WORLD APPROACH TO MOTORIZATION: STRUCTURAL VS BEHAVIORAL FACTORS AT THE HORIZON 2025

The paper addresses the question of the evolution of motorization globally, and attempts to identify structural and behavioral factors of motorization increase, by mode, at the horizon 2025. The analysis is based on three case studies (Montreal, Marrakech, Puebla) representative of three levels of economic development, and proposes a simplified travel demand by mode which is centered on two main factors: the structural effects and the behavioral effects. The paper also attempts to generalize the approach to address the issue of world motorization at the level of 13 large areas in the world and tries to identify some important environmental issues in the next two decades in terms of motorization and sustainability.
