Giulia Oeschger (PhD Researcher) - Micromobility, Travel Behaviour
Giulia Oeschger is pursuing a PhD at the School of Civil Engineering, University College Dublin. Her research background and interests include sustainable urban mobility systems, accessibility and transport equity as well as travel behaviour and user preferences and needs.
Giulia’s PhD research project is centred on micromobility adoption and use in the urban context, particularly in combination with existing public transport services and networks to provide attractive alternatives to private car travel. The outcomes will be useful both for micromobility and public transport service providers as well as local authorities, to implement and regulate services that meet the users’ needs and promote more sustainable and less carbon-intensive mobility systems.

This paper presents an extensive systematic literature review of studies that focus specifically on the integration of micromobility and public transport systems and is, to the knowledge of the authors, the first review focusing on this specific aspect of micromobility. This systematic review offers an understanding of how this topic has been studied to date, which factors and aspects have been considered and analysed, which causalities have been identified in the research, in addition to identifying gaps in the literature and providing guidance for future research on this topic. Furthermore, this paper provides a comprehensive collection and critical discussion of suggestions and recommendations included in the literature aimed at improving and further promoting the effective integration of micromobility and public transport services.
