  • we use the gravity model to study flows of passengers on London’s rail system.extensive network. 588 stations. click for oyster card.oyster cards record the point and time of entry… and link all journeys to a user id, so we can analyse individual travel patterns.stats – 1 month = 77 million journeys by 5 million users between 588 stations.

  • Our proposal is to use AFC data in order to build a well established form of interaction model – the gravity model – to describe the flow of passengers on public transport systems.introduced by Zipf in 1946 – successfully used to help explain flow of humans, goods, information and disease, at inter-city level and above.

  • in particular, transport analysts and planners need to be able to understand and predict passenger flowso far there has been little work on modeling flows on public transport systems in an urban environment, or at the intra-city level.one reason for this may be lack of data, but with adoption of AFC in cities all over the world, this data is now readily available.

    • 2. offline & online
    • 3. census deprivation + data
    • 4. census deprivation + londoners on twitter
    • 5. census deprivation + sentiment
    • 6. predicting socioeconomic well-being with twitter r=.350 word count r=.365 MaxEnt
    • 7. census deprivation + topics
    • 8. Talk of the City [ICWSM’12] social media environment sports health Royal wedding Spanish/Portuguese celebrity gossips
    • 9. census deprivation + tube trips
    • 10. Proposal
    • 11. Proposal
    • 12. ProposalDeprivation might be connected to: HP1: “unexpected” mobility HP2: use of bus (compared to tube use) HP3: low social/geographic diversity
    • 13. Hypothesis 1build a gravity model ~ flow of passengers
    • 14. What is a gravity model? a b Pi PjTij = k g dij Pj Pi dij
    • 15. Hypothesis 1gravity works: r= .72!
    • 16. Hypothesis 1Where the model fails to fit wellunexplained bit: prevailing socioeconomic factors ?
    • 17. Hypothesis 1Where the model fails to fit wellunexplained bit: prevailing socioeconomic factors ?We look at (gravity)Residuals
    • 18. Hypothesis 2#tube passengers proportional to population“Bus/Car bias”: residual between #passengers and population
    • 19. Hypothesis 3Social/Geographic diversity: socio-economic advantage“Social/Geo” diversity
    • 20. Hypothesis 1+2+3 Gravity Residuals *** Bus Bias ** Socio/Geo Diversity n.s.s. R^2= 9% IMD R^2= 34% Living Environment
    • 21. Hypothesis 1+2+3 (top+bottom only) Gravity Residuals *** Bus Bias ** Socio/Geo Diversity n.s.s. R^2= 27% IMD R^2= 54% Living Environment

    • 24. Predicting…
    • 25. So what?Strong Passenger flow–urban deprivation(timely & effective & longitudinal)
    • 26. Situation  (Its already 75% in the USA)
    • 27. Situation By 2025 another 1.2 billion living in urban areas
    • 28. Situation Cities in developing countries: 5M new inhabitants each month
    • 29. Problem Inequality! Timely allocation of scarce resources
    • 30. census deprivation + “mental maps”
    • 31. draw a map
    • 32. launched few months ago & > 2K players
    • 33. Visibility & Social Deprivation
