    Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


    [automatically translated] The problem of the daily mobility of people, of their home and work, is becoming increasingly important from both a technical and organizational point of view of transport services and from the socio-economic. In this second aspect of the phenomenon of commuting league somehow the world of work to family and domestic world. The theme is part of the transformations that occur mainly in urban areas, in large metropolitan areas, but their effects are felt even on larger territorial levels. The technical and organizational aspects are now in front of technologically advanced transportation systems, both in the road transport and in that of iron, which allow us to offer existing and potential users of quality services in the construction of the means, the ride comfort, safety, environmental compatibility, information to passengers, and, through the interchanges, in the field of integration and inter (from the beginning of the overall shift). The ITC and intelligent transport systems can further add requirements to the system to improve its performance in respect of the traveler and the economic and management aspects of the operating company and the industry Ente planner. Aspects of socio-economic nature have a fundamental reference to the changes that are occurring are territorially and that as a determining characteristic spatial division between the workplace and place of residence. The outsourcing of metropolitan economies, the geographical rearrangement of work activities (ie jobs), social polarization correspond to the main development trends of the urban world into large metropolitan agglomerations. Two elements of the urban structure emerge from this observation: the economic and social aspect. The economic part includes, among others, the main territorial contexts that are significant destinations of trips, while the social part is rather associated to the places of residence of the workers (the origins) and their characteristics. Daily commute commuter-workers between home and workplace establish a link between these two urban spheres and, for this fact, They can contribute to the acquisition of essential information for a better understanding and a more detailed understanding of urban agglomerations affected the commuting phenomenon. The report allows you to increase knowledge on procedures of the home to work, on the quality of services offered, on the role of "mobility manager" and to propose structural and organizational changes necessary to improve this aspect of the Sicilian mobility. The use of public transport, and in particular train, it is a choice that is made for economic reasons, but not only. Train travel is seen by most users as less stressful, being able to use the travel time to work, study, converse, and so on. There are no parking problems and in many cases the same journey time is competitive with the car, especially during peak hours. All this in theory, because in practice the inefficiency out there, and undoubtedly very weigh on the choice of the train for their journeys. The inefficiency, they are subjected to daily commuters, have for some time now the subject of attention from the newspapers.
