Access Mobility to Local Railway Stations: Current Travel Practices And Forecast

Abstract : Increasing the attractiveness of a railway transport system requires improving accessibility to train stations. In particular, it means promoting environmentally friendly access modes and implementing a management policy of parking offer. Understanding how people reach railway stations is a key challenge for authorities to identify the levers for action. International scientific work has analyzed access travels to stations according to individuals' characteristics, access distances, levels of transport services including parking offer, and station environment. However, these research studies are not representative of French behaviors, which are not well known. This paper aims to qualify the potential link between access modes to French railway stations, rail service level and spatial environment of stations. It presents an assessment of the modal shares of access travel to French stations according to their profile (transport and urban profiles). This evaluation provides a methodological approach for local authorities to support accessibility issues of local railway stations, without needing to carry out field surveys.
