This paper examines the mode choice for commuting and shopping-leisure trips in Nanjing. It finds that members of ‘adult families’ use public transport and walking more often than the private car and bicycle. And inhabitants of danwei neighbourhoods walk more often than residents in commodity housing estates. These conclusions suggest that ongoing socio-spatial transformations will push mode choice in China further towards private car use
