Editorial Sustainability Issues of Micro and Macro-Scale Changes in Daily and Residential Mobility

Abstract : Daily travel patterns can change, subject to short-term factors (e.g., changes in working hours) or longer-term factors, for example, related to major life events (e.g., childbirth or relationship status). Change can also be a result of economic or cultural changes (e.g., peak car or recession). Trips can also be modified, either voluntarily or not, according to new public policies (e.g., incentive pricing or improved public transport) or private actions linked to workplace relocation. These transitions, whether at a micro- or macro-level, can lead to positive or negative outcomes in terms of environmental impact and health and wellbeing effects. Choices made at the individual level can also lead to different socio-spatial consequences, increasing or decreasing territorial inequalities for instance. In this context, this Special Issue of Sustainability bring together theoretical, methodological, and empirical works on the changes in mobility behaviour, whether daily, labour, or residential, by more particularly studying the relationships that may exist between them, and that lead to changing sustainable mobility and quality of life.
