This paper discusses the influence of access and egress distance on modal choice of train versus automobile in the context of urban and regional planning and locational decisions. It may be concluded that both access and egress distance do affect the modal choice train versus automobile. However egress distances tend to be somewhat shorter than access distances. This tendency clearly relates with the availability of modes of transportation for access, egress and the central part of the trip, with the total length of the trip and with the geographical situation.
