This report presents the results of the 1994 London Journey Times Survey (JTS), for journeys using rail, bus, car and bicycle transport modes. The survey is intended as a basis for standardised monitoring of long-term trends in average door-to-door journey times. It was the second in a cycle of three annual surveys in different parts of London. The 1993 survey covered journeys in central and inner London. The 1994 survey covered: (1) short journeys within inner London; (2) long journeys within inner London; and (3) short journeys within outer London. The respective average lengths of these journeys were: (1) 2.1 miles; (2) 5.7 miles; (3) 2.3 miles. 'Short' journeys were up to four miles direct distance, and 'long' journeys were over four miles. The sample was chosen by randomly selecting actual journeys from the 1991 London Area Transport Survey (LATS). The surveyors played the part of visitors, who had not made the trip before, but had access to maps, timetables, and information about parking places. For class (1), the respective average journey times were 22min, 39min and 18min by car, public transport and bicycle. For class (2), they were 50min, 67min and 48min. For class (3), they were 18min, 40min and 20min.
