AN ANALYSIS OF CHANGE IN THE PATTERN OF SHOPPING TRIPS IN LONDON 1981-91

This paper analyses changes in travel behaviour for the purpose of purchasing goods in London from 1981 and 1991. The main analysis is based on comparisons between data from the Greater London Transport Survey 1981 and the London Area Transport Survey (LATS) 1991, with shopper profiles drawn from analysis of data from over 60,000 household interviews. Further analysis is made from the London Research Centre's Development Monitoring Database and TRAVL, a trip generation database for London. These data provide objective confirmation of these phenomena, while showing that average trip lengths for shopping remain very short - even by car. (A)
