There is a paradigm shift in the way
that mobilities are looked at today. It is
no longer enough just planning with an
overview and using trac models. More
elds are getting included in planning mo-
bilities, especially the eld of social science.
This gives room for the emphasis on chang-
ing travel behavior, which has become
more and more important in the present
solutions, if a sustainable mobility system
is wanted. Travel behavior are the patterns
and rhythms of peoples decision when trav-
eling, especially important is which mode
of transport is being used. If there is not
a focus on travel behavior, then technol-
ogy will take over and encourage people
to drive longer, which does not x the
problem of congestion. Travel behavior is
needed if the future problems of congestion
is to be xed.
This report is a study on understanding the
factors of travel behavior and how it can
be in
uenced to a more sustainable devel-
First, the sustainable challenges and prob-
lems of the world are presented and ac-
knowledged to create a context for the
project, and within these challenges, a lo-
cal case is selected. The case is Aarhus,
which is forecasted to meet these sustain-
able challenges in the future.
Second, the aim is to understand the need
for travel behavior in mobility and why it
is important. After that, it is necessary
to understand which factors can in
travel behavior, if in fact a change is de-
Lastly, three case study, done be re-
searchers, are reviewed to examine how
they t with the theory and more impor-
tantly to learn experiences from real life
situations. The cases include, a analysis
of the built environment and land use of
Flanders and the Netherlands, examining
how habits in car use can be broken by ac-
tive measures and interventions, and how a
workplace in Lisbon tried to change travel
behavior by relocating their oces.
The nal product is a set of lessons learned
and recommendations that are in the end
related to the case of Aarhus.
