HOW LAND USE PATTERNS AFFECT TRAVEL PATTERNS: A BIBLIOGRAPHY

This review of the literature on how land use patterns affect travel patterns, with respect to both methods and findings, was undertaken for the ultimate goal of testing the degree to which the various findings can be synthesized into general statements about relationships between urban structure and transportation demand patterns and to suggest new research approaches and topics based on gaps and inconsistencies in the research to date. Briefly, it was found that the standard assumptions and popular beliefs about the relationships between urban structure and travel patterns, in particular that dense development results in less total travel by automobile and thus less energy use, are generally supported by the studies reviewed, but not by all.
