Accessibility by distinguished transport modes is probably the most important concept in transport geography and transport planning: it expresses that the transport system aims to provide access to places where people want to carry out activities. But it is also a concept for which many definitions and indicators are available, each characterized by their own pros and cons. This contribution discusses types of indicators and how to choose between indicators for as specific case. In addition, it explains that information and communication technology (ICT) increasingly plays a dominant role in people's life as far as (travel to) activities are concerned, and consequently the importance of ICT for accessibility analyses also increases. Finally, it presents several challenges for future research.
