3rd Netherlands Mobility Panel (MPN) Symposium

After two successful Netherlands Mobility Panel Symposia, the Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM) is organizing the third symposium together with Delft University of Technology and DANS.

The Netherlands Mobility Panel (MPN) is a household panel that started in 2013. The data collected with the MPN are used to study trends in the travel behavior of a fixed group of individuals and households over a longer time period.

Does your travel pattern change when you move from the city to the countryside? Why do some people choose to go walking or cycling? What is the role of health in a mode shift to active modes? With the use of the MPN we aim to answer these type of questions.

In this year’s symposium researchers from several organizations will present research that is based on both the MPN and other panels. The topics include, among others:

  • Trip patterns of e-bike users
  • Health and mobility
  • Determinants of immobility
  • Mobility as a Service (MAAS)
  • Residential preferences of households
  • Use of smartphones in panel studies
