Minimum commuting distance as a spatial characteristic in a non-monocentric urban system: the case of Flanders

Kobe Boussauw UGent, Tijs Neutens UGent and Frank Witlox UGent (2011) PAPERS IN REGIONAL SCIENCE. 90(1). p.47-66
abstract
This paper focuses on regional variations in commuting trip lengths by calculating minimum (required) commuting distances, along with excess commuting rates. The study contributes to the excess commuting research framework from a regional perspective, both by stressing the specific characteristics of urban networks with overlapping commute areas, and by putting forward an alternative method for calculating spatially disaggregated values. A case study in the north of Belgium shows that large variations in minimum commuting distances occur. This in turn identifies to a large extent opportunities for shrinking commuting distances by influences such as rising fuel prices, compact urban planning, extreme congestion or dissuasive traffic policies.
