Abstract

A GIs-method to calculate accessibility by car, bus, cycle and foot M. Reneland Department of City & Mobility, School of Architecture, Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden Abstract Financed by the Swedish National Road Administration (Vagverket) I have developed GIs-methods (Geographic Information System) to analyse different users' accessibility to different facilities in real footway, cycleway, public transport and car networks. The focus is on the standard setting user groups (children, elderly and the disabled) in Swedish traffic policy as well as on women and their assumed demands concerning safety, security and comfort in foot- and cycleway networks. The travel time between origins and destinations of free choice, chosen among the real estate coordinates in a town, can then be calculated. Using these models it is possible to calculate travel time quotients between the four modes of travel with origin and destination of free choice among the real estate coordinates. Severa
