Abstract(s)This paper aims (i) to demonstrate the relevance of deepening the study of time usage from the individual and family perspectives and (ii) to put in dialog perceptions and uses of time with daily mobility patterns. It is increasingly imperative to consider mobility and the uses of time as central axes of lifestyles, highlighting the weight of several variables in the definition of lifestyle choices, namely transportation options. This reflection is based on an empirical study carried out in Portugal through interviews in the metropolitan areas of Lisbon and Porto. The analysis leads to the conclusion that, in addition to physical distances people have to cover, the choice of specific means of transportation is strongly dependent on the perceptions and uses of time. It is also evident that time is simultaneously dependent on the way technologies are absorbed into daily life and that time remains a matter of constraint and social opportunity.
