John C. Falcocchio, Herbert S. Levinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Mobility is the ability of people and goods to travel easily, safely, quickly and reliably. Trip mobility varies with the speed of travel, and it may be defined as the number of trips taken and their distance (trip-miles) within the traveler’s daily travel time and cost budgets. Therefore, lower speeds resulting from traffic congestion reduce mobility.
