The Social Context of Travel


Michael, S., and Klein, N., (2015). “The Social Context of Travel.” ACCESS 46, Spring.


The authors examine how the social context of a neighborhood can influence activity and travel patterns. Specifically, the authors explore the travel patterns of those living in “neighborhoods of affinity,” where members of a group with strong social ties live and work. Other examples of these neighborhoods include immigrant enclaves and religious communities.
