Geographies of Mobilities

October
"The rhythms of commuting are exceedingly diverse and shaped by numerous factors, including the mode of transport and its particular affordances, cultural practices and social conventions, modes of regulation, the distance travelled and the specificities of the space passed through. (...) The spatial scales of travel vary according to weather a journey conjoins home and work over short distances or extends many miles, or occurs on large highways, smaller roads or railways."
