What mobility for teenagers ? Results from a quantitative survey in five European countries

This topic aims at understanding precisely what are the mobility behaviors and aspirations of people under 18. The increasing use of ICT enables a larger access to several information (vehicle availability, travel times, costs, etc.) and payment systems. Do they help young people to travel on a daily basis? Does a better communication between parents and children help a larger autonomy for young people? In the last decades, the image of the transport system was built around the paradigm of technical progress. In this context, the individual car was considered “progress” relative to public transport, as it freed users from the constraints of specific routes and schedules, and allowed for independent travel in the comfort of a private space. Is this image still relevant for young people? Our aim is to specify the factors that play a role in modal choice and the effective daily mobility behaviors of under 18.
