Children’s travel and incidental community connections
2015 (English)In: Travel Behaviour and Society, ISSN 2214-367X, Vol. 2, no 3, 174-181 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
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.
