This article examines travel distances in daily trips based on random day trip diaries and long-distance trips for private and business purposes. First, it analyses the effects of municipality size classes based on population, population density, and land-use mix, while controlling for sociodemographics. Second, it finds distances travelled on long-distance trips and daily trips to be affected by sociodemographics in much the same way, while spatial effects affect distances travelled on daily and long-distance trips mostly in different directions. Residents of small municipalities and low-density neighbourhoods make fewer and/or shorter long-distance journeys than those living in large cities and high-density neighbourhoods, but the latter travel shorter distances in their daily lives
