Project description

Most studies investigating the link between the built environment and travel behavior focus on objective characteristics, such as density, diversity and design. Recently, however, more subjective aspects (such as attitudes and lifestyles) are also taken into account. In this project we will combine both objective and subjective elements to measure the link between travel behavior, the built environment and well-being.
