- Working Paper
The indices for walkability proposed so far are mostly ad-hoc and refer generally to the closest amenities/public transport stops and the existing network structure. They are ad-hoc as the weights of the attributes are generally arbitrary and do not reflect the independently measured preferences of pedestrians. Furthermore, they do not include design attributes such as the layout of sidewalks, noise and speed level of traffic or street width, which are very relevant for actual planning decisions. In this context, the research project „Walkability and Pedestrian Route Choice‟ aimed to develop a walkability index that is behaviourally founded and to provide software tools that allow for the evaluation of existing and future urban plans with regards to walkability Show more
