The method and some results of this survey are presented. The survey was to provide data for a transportation study, and also to help deal with immediate problems. It emphasized land use-transportation interaction, besides simply surveying peoples movements. 803 zones within 50km of Tokyo were studied, including a population of 21 million in 1968. Household surveys (2% sample) collected demographic, economic and travel characteristics. Car ownership and availability, household income, and employment were some details included. 48 million trips per day were made by 20 million people. Breakdowns of trips by sex, age, origin-purpose, destination-purpose and destination-zone are presented. 65% of all downtown trips were work or on-the -job trips, although home was the longest single destination-purpose in the whole area (41%). Information on linked trips is given. Walking was in single most used mode (43% of linked trips), while only 15% was by automobile. The relationship between trip length (time) and mode is described, as is that between journey purpose and mode. Trip generation rates are given for five sectors, and for several times of day. The destination location for home-based trips is presented in a graph. /TRRL/
