Abstract [en]

This article looks at the effect that social interactions during travel have on children. The authors investigate how the build environment and mode of travel affect the chance of a child seeing others, either a known person or unknown. The study found that car use reduces the chance of seeking a known person, whereas children associated walking or traveling independently with seeing a known person. The results suggest that mixed-use, transit-oriented development may support better social interaction for children.
