Non-motorized transportation in four Shanghai districts

Shanghai is well known for a high level of non-motorized travel, in particular by bicycle. This research investigated firstly whether significant differences in the use of non-motorized transportation between areas of the city can be attributed to particular features of the local environment, in particular road network characteristics and design; secondly, the extent to which personal and household characteristics contribute to this variable use of foot and bicycle modes of travel.
