Abstract

As stated in the existing literature, travel behavior and transportation choice are closely related to urban forms and the built environment. The study presented in this chapter attempts to conduct a citywide evaluation of the walking accessibility to urban facilities and the availability of public transport, as well as relevant potential car dependence. By taking the city of Xiamen, China, as a case study, the current study generates some useful information vis-à-vis both public transport and urban facility providers, by illustrating the city’s spatial patterns and identifying problematic areas. The methodology developed in this study might also serve as a reference for future studies.
