ACCESSIBILITY INDICES IN URBAN STUDIES: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE

LES INDICATEURS D'ACCESSIBILITE DANS LES ETUDES URBAINES: DE LA THEORIE A LA PRATIQUE

An attempt is made to summarize the present knowledge on accessibility indices. The development of accessibility indices is outlined together with their theoretical basis. Practical methods of calculation and use are described, and several examples of application as a function of transport supply and demand for different population groups are given. Details are given of recent investigations carried out in France on the relations between accessibility and urban development. /TRRL/
