The built environment influence on travel behavior (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aimed to examine the qualities of the built environment that influence travel behavior. This is still a relatively unexplored area of European environments. The concept of the built environment contains different elements such as building structures which describes diversity, density, design, destination accessibility and distance to transit. Logit models estimated mode choice and car ownership from an activity-based approach. A range of variables for the socio-economic and built environments were tested for these models. The result suggests that the built environment has a rather complex impact on travel behavior. Variables such as density, destination accessibility and design has a great influence on mode choice. However it is not possible to ensure that there is the built environment itself that contribute to certain behaviors or if individuals with these behaviors tend to seek areas with a suitable environment.
