Transport planning has studied social networks as central element behind the location choice for residential locations and for leisure activities. The talk will introduce the overall framework motivating this line of research first. In the second part the key empirical results will be discussed and the relevant models presented: frequency of contacts across contact modes, imputation of artificial social networks for agent-populations based on a large scale snowball sample and finally identification of networks of "familiar strangers" using smart card usage data.
The talk will conclude with an assessment of the future work to be expected from transport.
