The purpose of this paper is to examine some consequences of changes in the location of economic activity and changes to transport on urban society. It is divided into four sections. In the first section, the inter-relationships between accessibility and the amount of travel are introduced in a theoretical way. The argument is that distributions of accessibility (over space), distributions of private vehicle (over space and within households) and distributions of trip-length (over space) are being modified over historical time. Section two explains various measures of accessibility to employment. Section three describes patterns of accessibility to jobs and travel in Sydney in 1971. Section four speculates on how these patterns have evolved in the post war period and how they might evolve in the future. /TRRL/
