Abstract

A study of six companies in Greater Oslo indicates that both the modal split and the energy use for journeys to work are to a high extent influenced by the geographical location of the workplace. Employees of workplaces in peripheral, low-density parts of the urban area are far more frequent car drivers and use more energy than employees of workplaces located in central areas. An immediate increase in commuting distance of a workplace moving to the urban fringe has not been reversed by subsequent turnover and residential changes among the employees
