Descripción
To get sustainable mobility as an objective means a decrease in car use and the increase of alternative modes, such as walking, cycling, and public transport. But this transfer from private car to these other more sustainable modes is only a real alternative in central city areas where distances are smaller and the offer of public transport more competitive. This paper proposes a methodology to calculate the number of trips that can be transferred from private car to other modes by first analyzing which kinds of trips cannot change its mode (purposes, conditions, safety, etc.), and then setting a process to determine under which conditions trips made by car between each pair of zones O-D can be transferable. The methodology is validated through its application to the city of Madrid (Spain) with the result of only 18% of the trips currently made by car could be made by other modes, under the same conditions of trip time, and without affecting their characteristics. From these trips, 75% could be made by public transport, 15% cycling and 10% on foot.
