Beskrivning: The project application relates to a three-year research plan that focuses its research focus on the use of modern data sources in order to improve the user interface of public transport for different groups and locations. The research group has access to several unique databases that can be combined to improve knowledge about how different groups of mobility behavior vary over the different hours, weeks and months of the day and between the city, suburban and rural areas, and taking into account socio-economic composition among potential travelers. The research project has been submitted to Sweden, but research and comparative work will be done in close collaboration with international researchers, especially from Israel.The databases that consist of detailed travel and route data from various Swedish and Israeli public transport operators, mobile data (Big Data), where over one million anonymous phones can be monitored over time (in ethically and approved way) from Sweden, longitudinal individual databases describing the population´s geographical, socio-economic, demographic and employment composition.The ability to combine these detailed types of databases has, as far as we can see, never been done before, but allows us to associate observed mobile phone streams with population characteristics estimated statistically and which allows us to study how variation in daily mobility (length, complexity, travel time, etc.) distinguishes between different types of places and between different groups.The objectives of the research are therefore:Increase the attractiveness of sustainable transport systems. By improving knowledge about the actual travel and route patterns of different groups, public transport solutions that take into account temporal and geographical variations in travel can be developed. Furthermore, suggestions on how to integrate more different modes can be generated by planning and making it attractive to travel portable during sub-travel.Increase social and economic integration in planning. Preliminary results have shown differences in how much, how complex and how varied different groups and residential areas travel over a day. Mobility allows for integration if mobility is targeted at heterogeneous sites both for use and population composition, but an excessive amount of mobility in areas of exclusion is targeted at similar areas or is limited to their own area. By observing travel patterns, highlighting differences for decision makers and practitioners, and by proposing new roles, increased social and economic integration can be achieved.Increase knowledge about how access to school, care, trade, work, recreation, etc. varies in such a way that urban residents, suburban residents and country residents need to carry out different types of trips to reach desired places. The knowledge is generated by contrasting observed and potential travel trajectories between different types of homes and destination sites. Knowledge gained can be transformed into regional planning where public transport and other sustainable transports are prioritized in the coordination of regional and local traffic.The project will run over a three-year period with a timetable aimed at observing mobility patterns in a first step, then informing and integrating these skills into actual planning in step two. Collaboration is currently taking place with public transport operators and with region and municipality at different locations in Mälardalen.
