The impact of job and household decentralization on commuting distances and travel modes. Experiences from the Copenhagen region and other Nordic urban areas

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Studies in several cities show longer commuting distances among residents of peripheral parts of urban areas than among inner-city dwellers. Inhabitants of the outer parts of the urban regions also have a higher propensity of commuting by car than those who live close to the city center. Conversely a high proportion of the latter residents commute by non-motorized modes. There is also quite strong evidence that a decentralized location of office workplaces contributes to increase the proportion of car commuters, compared to a central workplace location. - (IfL)
