Accessibility, attraction, and potential: a review of some concepts and their use in determining mobility
Roger Vickerman ()
Environment and Planning A, 1974, vol. 6, issue 6, 675-691
Some confusion seems to have developed over the relationship between accessibility and travel patterns. Various concepts of attraction, accessibility, and potential are examined with the object of reaching a more satisfactory definition. Multivariate analysis of data relating to an urban area suggests that the influences of conventional accessibility indices are concealed by collinear socioeconomic variations; when these are separated there is a more pronounced relationship. It is shown that such a relationship has important consequences for urban planning.
