Extensions to the concept of excess commuting

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In the aggregate, excess commuting is the nonoptimal or surplus work travel occurring in cities because people do not minimize their journeys to work. The A. presents an alternative view based on a theoretical maximum commute. This calculation allows for an analysis of the range between the theoretical minimum and maximum commutes. This range is taken to be the commuting capacity of a city. A model is formulated and applied to 1990 Census data for a sample of US cities.
