by Talat Munshi, Mark Brussel, and Mark Zuidgeest

Urban land use and transport planning and management are constant mutative interrelated processes. Even though, there is a growing body of research concerned with the relationship between urban and travel behaviour, studies. Since these studies originate from a diversity of sources and encompass a variety of geographic scales and locations and their contextual application need to be reviewed. This paper reviews urban form and travel behaviour relation in context of Ahmedabad city. A geo-spatial urban form and travel behaviour model is constructed using urban form data derived from conventional data sources like census and remote sensing and travel behaviour data from household survey for Ahmedabad city. The developed model would be able to position and relate urban form and travel behaviour indicator on strategic (planning, economic, social), spatial (block, ward, zone) and integration (individual or combined indicators) dimensions. The model developed would be able explain the inter-related urban and transport mutative process so as to monitor the effect of urban and transport interventions and policy implications.
