The structure of journeys and nature of travel patterns

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate at a conceptual level, with a limited amount of empirical evidence, the likely consequences on our present planning methodologies of taking into account the true structure of all journeys. A particular concern is the influence of changes in land-use configurations on the structure of journeys and the probable policy implications. A consideration of journey structure appears to offer one potentially promising procedure for relating land use and transport plans in a way that yields more realistic insights and policy in urban areas. The paper concludes with some suggestions for the way ahead.
