 Abstract
In this study, factor and cluster analysis are used to classify characteristics of the administrative basic unit, "Dong", of the Incheon Metropolitan City. Travel characteristics of the classified groups are then analyzed through databases to provide directions of urban transportation planning. First, industrially developed administrative-dong show a high commuting volume by using cars. Thus the analysis indicated the need to staggering work-hour system and signal operating system policy. Second, commercially developed administrative-dong show heavy use of public transportation and long distance commute as well as high volume of shoppers. The analysis indicated the need to improve road infrastructure. Third, densely populated administrative-dong show a high rate of commute to work and school as well as long hours of commuting. Thus the analysis indicated the need to improve road transportation policies during rush hours. Fourth, administrative-dong with multiple characteristics feature heavy pedestrian traffic thus the study analyzed the need to improve pedestrian environment policies. Lastly, administrative-dong in close proximity to train stations feature extensive use of biking as well as high volume of shoppers and students commuting. Thus the study analyzed the necessity to have plans to enhance accessibility.
