Abstract

This paper has been written as part of a project entitled "Potential for mode transfer of short trips' carried out for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the ReNons at the Centre for Transport Studies at UniversityCollege London (UCL) in partnership with Steer Davies Gleave (SDG). The overall objective of the project was to contribute to reducing the amount of car travel by exan~n"g why people used their cars for some short trips which they have made and what measures might influence them to change to the various alternatives. In this work a short trip is taken to be one of lessthan five miles. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the nature of the problem being addressed, and then to examine why people used their cars for those short journeys and what factors people say would cause them to switch to the various alternatives.
