Abstract

The accessibility level of urban areas depends on the attractiveness of the zone and its reachability degree. The former is affected by settled activities; the latter depends on features of the supply system. From a sustainable perspective, one of the key strategies is promoting the use of active modes and micro-mobility options. In this context, the paper aims to investigate the variations in student accessibility (i.e., passive accessibility) due to the adoption of a micro-mobility solution. To show the feasibility of the proposed approach, it has been applied in the case of university plexuses in the Fuorigrotta district (Naples, Italy). Simulation results confirm that such solutions increase the accessibility level and show that they are preferred by users as first/last mile options, as well as for replacing pedestrian trips. Moreover, the provided outcome reveals the effectiveness of the proposed methodology as a Decision Support System (DSS) for helping micro-mobility operators to design service features.
