CALONGE REILLO, Fernando  and  ACEVES ARCE, Rodolfo Humberto. Journeying through Non-Central Sectors of the Guadalajara, Mexico Metropolitan Area. The Lack of Resources and Alternative Transportation as Conditioning Factors for Social Exclusion. Sociológica (Méx.) [online]. 2019, vol.34, n.96, pp.137-168. ISSN 2007-8358.

Dependency on the use of the automobile and how to change it have been two of the issues that have attracted the most attention of researchers from developed countries. However, this kind of research does not delve deeply into the context of developing countries. This is especially serious given the particular conditions of scarce resources and alternative forms of transportation. This article helps remedy these deficiencies by analyzing a survey carried out in the Guadalajara, Mexico metropolitan area. Its objective is to show how household members in non-central municipalities use transportation differently and the resulting repercussions in terms of social exclusion.

Keywords : urban mobility; metropolitan peripheries; uses of transportation; developing countries; Guadalajara metropolitan area.
