This paper analyses the effects of land use characteristics on mode choice and carownership. The study is based on a large sample of individuals from the National TravelSurvey of Great Britain for the years 1989-91 and 1999-2001. Land use characteristics aredefined as population density, size of the municipality, accessibility to public transport andlocal amenities, such as shops and services. Mode choice (shares of total travel by car,public transport and walking) and car ownership are modelled using multinomial andbinomial logit models respectively, which include a large number of socio-economicfactors (income, age, gender, household structure and employment status) as well as landuse indicators. The estimation results strongly support the importance of the land usefactors considered on mode choice and car ownership.
