Introduction to Part 3

Part 3 of this report discusses the development and proof of concept implementation of the proposed accessibility methodology that includes walking, cycling, public transport and private motor vehicles. It also includes measured travel behaviour and is able to model increasing accessibility with increasing opportunities that are deemed to be in reach based on a continuous measure.

The approach proposed builds on existing modelling capabilities, for example adding the dimension of land use opportunities and people’s capabilities to existing narrower mobility analysis solutions. However it also seeks to ensure there is a practical and affordable toolkit for assessing accessibility with analysis costs commensurate with the budgets likely to be available for this sort of work.
