Impediments to walking as a mode choice

This study evaluates a case-control design of contrasts between 110 drivers of a walkable distance and 238 walkers to address factors influencing the uptake of walking as a mode choice. To overcome the issue of car dependency or the inability to walk, drivers are selected from those whose cars were found parked in a park-n-ride and who live less than 1km of that car park. This unique group of drivers exhibit a break in car dependency by using public transport but still do not walk to the station.
