PUBLIC TRANSPORT ACCESSIBILITY MEASUREMENT

This article describes a method of obtaining an aggregate index of accessibility to public transport services at any particular location in a specified area. The method involves measuring walk distances from individual household locations to all bus and rail access points within a specified walking distance from the household address. All services stopping at these points are then aggregated into a single notional service and an index of public transport accessibility based on this service is calculated. The application of the method in an area of inner London is discussed and some of the results obtained are presented. The article also investigates the relationship between the measures obtained and certain household characteristics such as household income and car ownership levels. (Author/TRRL)
