This article examines the current level of walking and cycling for transport in Cardiff, Kenilworth, and Southampton, UK. Obligatory and discretionary journeys were separately modelled under the assumption that different factors would affect mode choice. Using the concept of the active travel share, the AA. develop models analysing active travel behaviour. The results confirm that both personal and household characteristics have clear associations with the tendency for nonmotorised travel. The built environment, on the other hand, has significant associations with active travel only for obligatory journeys with the exception of distance to the main activity site, which is found to be significant for both journey types
