RP-2015 Carbon Reductions and Co-benefits: final report: part II, an analysis of current levels of active transport usage in Australia: towards a measure of baseline activity

This report is the second output of the scoping study RP2015 ‘Carbon Reductions and Co-benefits: Literature and practice review of Australian policies relating urban planning and public health’ and provides an analysis of (current) base line levels of usage of the active transport modes (walking and cycling) in urban Australia. The analysis uses the VISTA (Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity) database collected by the Victorian Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure, which is a major household travel survey (HTS) conducted in Melbourne and major regional centres in Victoria. It contains comprehensive data on the daily travel and activity patterns of households and persons, and provides an authoritative record of travel for all purposes by people from all socio-economic groupings, including data on the usage of the active transport modes for their own purposes and as part of trip chains (i.e. travel by all modes that can include trip segments of walking and cycling).
