Mobility of the Poor in Two European Metropolises: Car Dependence Versus Locality Dependence

Abstract : Based on a comparative study of the mobility of the poor in and around Paris and London, and backed by statistics and qualitative surveys, this paper exposes the greater car dependency of the poor in the UK than in France. Aside from the sociological factors (family mutual support networks), differing urban planning and transport policies are part of the reason why.
