‘Mobility is an essential part of people’s lives. This book presents frontier research on mobility and travel behaviour based on the life course approach. Drawing on new concepts and theories, it demonstrates how quantitative and qualitative methodologies can yield novel insights into how people travel, and why, capturing trends over time. Students and researchers interested in travel behaviour and mobility as well as the life course approach would benefit from this volume.’
