As an indispensable support of daily life, mobility has also been affected by the loss of jobs and the fall of spending power of families. The dimension of the changes, however, depends largely on the inherent conditions of the territory, which has the ability to enhance or constrain adaptation strategies to the crisis. The article analyzes daily mobility in the Barcelona Metropolitan Region for the period 2004-2012, examining the evolution of mobility patterns in the years before and after the arrival of the crisis in Spain. The impacts on daily mobility are contextualized upon the territorial resilience of each metropolitan area: Barcelona, the 1st and 2nd metropolitan crowns, also analyzing the different possibilities of adaptation that each area offers its citizens.
