Understanding urban life through rhythmicity is one way of analyzing pulsating mobile patterns of urbanity. Everyday life and urban living are polyrhythmic – a melting pot of rhythms. Some of these rhythms are caused by mobilities, and some mobilities are consequences of rhythms. In order to understand mobilities, it is important to understand how multiple rhythms influence the experience of living and working in the city. This is illustrated by the mobile life of bus drivers in Copenhagen, Denmark. The chapter discusses what we can learn from a perspective of rhythms and how these perspectives can improve urban mobilities planning.
