Abstract: 

This project explores the everyday travel of a small set of newcomers studying within the hospitality industry in Metro Vancouver. Using ethnographic methods of interviewing, exercises of ‘mental mapping’ and travelling together, each participant’s respective travel scenario is examined as an individual case study. This research seeks to provide an understanding about the set of strategies and tactics that are used to realize participants’ distinctive mobility needs and the role of daily transportation as a component of settlement in the Metro Vancouver region.
