Attachments Summary
Hele rapporten

This report examines the interplay between mobility, transport and the use of Information and Communication Technology. The report identifies three important strands of research - within transportation, ICT and urban geography - that have examined this interplay, and highlights relevant literature within these traditions. The diffusion of mobile ICT and possibilites of ubiquitous communication has partly rendered the original substitution thesis obsolete. ICT and transport are primarily used as complementary modes of communication. The report concludes by addressing some further fields of research.
