Neighbourhood differences in mode choices ...

... for the trip to the dairy In this paper we will report on a study that examined mode decisions and reasons for these decisions for short utiliitarian trips. The research focused on trips to the local dairy. A brief twelve item questionnaire was administered face to face to 635 people as they left fourteen dairies in two suburbs of Waitakere City in the Auckland region. The suburbs had comparable socio demographic profiles but distinct urban design features. The proportion of all neighbourhood trips to the diary taken on foot and by car differed significantly between the two suburbs. The origins and destinations of trips and the proportions of trips that involved trip chaining and short distance home-dairy-home journeys will be discussed.
