The topic of this paper is the mobility of ethnic minorities living in the Netherlands. For several reasons, some minorities are underrepresented in regular surveys. The goal of this research is to gain insight into differences in travel behaviour of minorities to the native Dutch population, and whether these differences should have implications for transportation policy. Minorities have different mobility patterns than the majority of the Dutch population. They visit friends and family more often. The differences in mobility patterns of men and women are greater than the male/female differences in the native population. There is also much difference in the extent to which knowledge on transportation policies reaches ethnic minorities. It is not known whether these differences disappear or diminish in the second and consequent generations. The research aims at analysing differences in travel behaviour of Surinams, Turks and Dutch more precisely.For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 871533.
