Multicultural diversity in mobility
People with a migration background are less mobile than those without a migration background. They stay at home more often for a whole day. When they do go out, they tend to travel a shorter total distance and visit fewer destinations. Nevertheless, people with a migration background and with an employment tend to have longer commuting distances and times than employed people without a migration background.
These are some of the conclusions drawn by the KiM Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis in its publication 'Multicultural diversity in mobility', in which the researchers examined the travel behaviour and travel opportunities of people with a migration background (first and second generation) in the Netherlands.
