About the Book

The main objective of this thesis is to compare and contrast the travel behaviour of selected study areas in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). These study areas vary with each other mainly on the basis of their spatial location and socio-economic condition. A second objective is to study the effect of gentrification on travel behaviour using the case study area (CURA) neighbourhoods. From the data analysis and the models developed it was found that socio-economic situation of the study area and spatial location play very important roles in governing travel behaviour. Also it was concluded that gentrification has an impact on travel behaviour in some gentrifying neighbourhoods but may not affect all neighbourhoods. The study also implied that from the transportation perspective gentrification does not produce positive consequences as it results in increasing auto usage. Future work for improving the models by including more neighbourhood variables is recommended.
