Mythes et pratiques de la coordination urbanisme-transport : Regards croisés sur quatre agglomérations suisses et françaises

Abstract : Today, there is a broad consensus that more coordination between transport and land-use policies is necessary to achieve sustainable urban development and mobility. If there is nothing new in the question regarding the interaction between spatial organization and transport, the ideas underlining this concern and the purposes of public policies have deeply evolved over the centuries. How have local authorities translated the requirements and objectives of national laws? In this research we focused on the question of political change by comparing the "trajectories" of four urban areas: Geneva and Bern in Switzerland and Strasbourg and Bordeaux in France. Ideals of land use-transport coherence are static, unlike the reality of urban policy, which is characterized by a lack of synchronization between network development and urban growth, constant misalignment between existing infrastructures and their uses, and actions situated within a history. Our empirical observations led us to give less importance to the influence of institutional reform as a means of achieving more integrated policies: changing local institutions alone is not in itself an effective means of changing policies. Finally, this research encourage us to take into account local actors' constraints and practices as a way to give a new insight on the question of coordinating transport and urbanism policies.
