Description:

Using the concept of mobility strategies as the set of tools people employ to perform their daily activities, this presentation focuses on interdependence as a key aspect needed to understand daily activity-travel behavior. We present a recent data collection and modeling effort performed in Concepción, Chile, which tries to disentangle key mobility strategy dimensions, such as time, space and monetary allocation in the context of people interdependence with their social networks.
