Métropolisation, mobilité quotidienne et forme urbaine, le cas de l'agglomération de Bandung, Indonésie

Abstract : This doctoral thesis focuses on the links between metropolitanisation, urban form and mobility in Bandung, Indonesia. Studies on the correlation between urban form and mobility behavior are largely developed with the cases of developed countries. However, there is a lack of prospective works on issues linking metropolisation, urban form and mobility in developing countries. Bandung is the third largest metropolitan area in Indonesia, with more than 7 millions inhabitants. The metropolisation of Bandung is produced as a result of strong demographic and economic growth. Urban sprawl is reflected in Bandung by a process of low-density suburbanisation, resulting in the reduction of agricultural areas, impacting displacements as urban sprawl causes the increase in the length of displacements. Metropolisation thus transforms not only activities, spatial structure and urban form, but also affects mobility practices. The change of scale of the city and the increase of the activity thus results in an increase of the mobilities and exchanges. Displacements evolve according to the exchanges of the suburbs and the peripheries with each other and with the city-center, as well as possibilities of jobs and activities offered by the ponds of life. This thesis explores the daily mobility behaviors of populations living in the central city of the Bandung metropolitan area and in the suburbs, The methods used in this study are based on qualitative and quantitative analyses. The process of metropolisation is envisaged by taking as a starting point the demand for mobility of the population. The findings of this survey, which contradict several observations in developed countries, highlight the weight of socio-economic variables in explaining mobility behaviors.
