CASA researchers have teamed up with the BBC to investigate how the Olympics will affect London commuters.
Thousands of visitors are predicted to use London’s transport network during the Games, with the number of individual journeys potentially rising by a third.
To monitor the impact this could have on regular users, CASA
will track four commuters using GPS tracking technology, as they take their
journeys to and from work. Each commuter regularly uses a different form of
transport – the tube, the bus, a car and a bicycle – representing the main
transport methods used in London.
The results of the research will be regularly updated by BBC News and will be available on their dedicated web page (hyperlink to http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-18857508).
