AM/PM Session - 29 May 2018 - How weather affects our travel behaviour
We read an article that described how the weather can affect our daily travel behaviour:
Vocabulary Top 8:
conversation prop - something that gives help or support to a conversation
drenched - completely wet; soaked
inclement - having rain and storms, cold
discretionary - available to be used when and how you decide; done or used when necessary
commute - to travel regularly to and from a place and especially between where you live and where you work
trip chaining - a trip made up of a sequence of smaller trips; e.g. Between your house and your work, you walk, catch a bus, catch a train, catch another bus and then walk again, all to get from the origin to the destination
NIMBYism - Not In My BackYard: used to express opposition by local citizens to the development in their neighborhood of a civic project, such as a jail, garbage dump, or drug rehabilitation center, that, though needed by the larger community, is considered unsightly, dangerous, or likely to lead to decreased property values.
30-minute city - the idea that we can engineer our cities so that home, work and play are all accessible within 30 minutes
