The Disruption project will be arriving en masse at the Annual Transport Practitioners Meeting in London on 1st and 2nd July 2015. The project will be giving four presentations covering different aspects of the project as well as running a workshop covering the overall ‘Fleximobility’ concept that we have generated from the project. The presentations will be: Responses and adaptability to disrupted travel patterns – a questionnaire study (Jillian Anable, Thomas Budd and Tim Chatterton) Spatial, temporal and social factors in everyday mobility and modal choice – 3 years of ethnographic studies (Noel Cass and James Faulconbridge) Disruption as it happens – a selection of responsive case studies (Greg Marsden and Jeremy Shires) Defining and delivering sustainable transport: who has the power to change the way we travel

WP2 Report on the Ethnographies of Mobilities and Disruption

Between Spring 2012 and Summer 2014, 23 families and 36 individuals in Brighton, and 16 families and 25 individuals in Lancaster participated in a major ethnographic study of their travel and mobility patterns, with particular focus on how disruptions to their lives affected these. The work concluded that the  concepts of ‘normality’, ‘routine’ and ‘habit’ need to be discarded as the baselines for understanding mobility

York City Council Workshop on Flexi-mobility

On 30th January, Greg, Caroline and Tim spent the afternoon with York City Council, holding a workshop for members of the transport team to test and develop the ‘Flexi-mobility’ concept.

Department for Transport Resilience Review – Disruption Project Comments

This document ( Transport Resilience Review final ) contains a short response to the DfT’s Resilience Review Report. The document suggests the need to expand the framing of resilience. Whilst the infrastructural recommendations are certain to reduce the duration and severity of many extreme weather events, the absence of a clear understanding of the social response to disruption means that some potential solutions will be missed and some will be mistargeted.
