This paper proposes a methodology for investigation of the space–time relations of accessibility to public services and collective mobility. The paper assesses the space–time efficiency of local public transport facilities and makes an accessibility analysis as a baseline for evaluating future changes. It explains the potential for improvement and the effects on planning paradigms. Public transport accessibility greatly changes during day and night time so they should be assessed through multi-scaled and diachronic maps as a contribution to the timetable plan and overall planning strategies. The case study of Brescia, Italy is used to test the methodology. The new light rail system of Brescia entered into operation in 2013 and could change the entire form of urban mobility.

Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology for investigation of the space–time relations of accessibility to public services and collective mobility. The paper assesses the space–time efficiency of local public transport facilities and makes an accessibility analysis as a baseline for evaluating future changes. It explains the potential for improvement and the effects on planning paradigms. Public transport accessibility greatly changes during day and night time so they should be assessed through multi-scaled and diachronic maps as a contribution to the timetable plan and overall planning strategies. The case study of Brescia, Italy is used to test the methodology. The new light rail system of Brescia entered into operation in 2013 and could change the entire form of urban mobility.
