Abstract

With the IT (Information Technology) Revolution in the 21 th century, many cities have developed strong infrastructural communication networks. It is expected that well-built communication networks will diminish people's need for traveling. Subsequently, the decreased traffic would lead to reduced energy consumption in transport. The purpose of this study is to investigate the environmental impact resulting from changes in traveling activities as a result of an enhanced communication infrastructure supported by ICTs. We have made a preliminary study to examine the relations between the use of ICTs and people's mobility. The impact on the environment was further analyzed using regression analysis. This study aims to provide some information about the potential of ICTs on the environment.
