About article:

This article deals with current changes in mobility patterns and travel behaviour in the Czech Republic. The study is focused on the metropolitan hinterland of Prague. It is based on a detailed research of recent mobility patterns and transport behaviour in the administrative district of Benešov, which is located near Prague. This region was strongly influenced by the transformation of the spatial structure of the settlement system in the Czech Republic. As a result, there is a strong orientation on commuting to Prague. The study uses the database from last two population censuses to analyze the main spatial patterns of commuting to work and to schools in the district of Benešov between 2001 and 2011. The second part analyses current trends in transport behaviour of commuters based on a questionnaire survey. The study brings a few interesting results about the changing structure of spatial mobility and preferences of various transport modes as a part of complex transport behaviour.
