Commuting, transport and urban form: Manchester and Glasgow in the mid-twentieth century

  • Colin G. Pooley (a1) and Jean Turnbull (a1)

Abstract

The paper explores the links between changing transport technology, individual mobility and urban form in the British cities of Manchester and Glasgow in the mid-twentieth century. The variability of individual commuting preferences is stressed, and it is argued that decisions about the provision of public transport rarely took into account the views of individual commuters. It is also suggested that factors governing modal choice have remained quite stable from the 1930s to the 1960s.
