Youth mobility in the Lille European Metropolis

Between 2006 and 2016, the number of daily trips done by primary, middle and high school students living on the territory of the European Metropolitan Area of Lille (MEL) decreased.  This decline is driven in particular by a decrease in the number of journeys made on foot. The MEL commissioned a study from 6t and CEREMA to explain this phenomena, which does not affect other segments of the population.

In order to better understand the mobility conditions of young people, an innovative methodology has been developed that combines focus groups with high school students and their parents. Parents will be invited to discuss among themselves their representations of their children’s mobility, the rules they put in place surrounding it, as well as their vision of the evolution of travel behaviour. For their part, high school students will be asked to describe their daily lives and discuss the motivations and perceived obstacles to their everyday mobility. The implementation of this system in two MEL territories with distinct modal practices and urban forms will make it possible to identify common conditions and differentiating points guiding the development of youth mobility in the Lille metropolis.
