Changing Urban Mobility Behaviour
Currently, many European cities face problems caused by the road traffic. The urban population’s growth and the subsequent increase in the number of vehicles generated a less favourable scenario, translated by severe congestion, noise, air pollution and poor air quality. Therefore, the electric vehicles emerge as a response to these problems, but also as a potential solution to the future depletion of fossil fuels.
Considering the recent restructuring and the provisional solutions tested during the pandemic crisis, the question of how to improve urban mobility and resolve existing discrepancies remains an incognito.
the main objective of this doctoral research is to examine the relationship between the urban morphology, the population’s spatial distribution and the existence of two-wheeled electric vehicles user profiles in four European cities (Lisbon, Porto, Cluj-Napoca and Madrid).
