THE LONDON AREA TRANSPORT SURVEY 1991

The main components of the report were a large household survey and a major roadside survey. Data on rail travel were provided by British Rail and London Underground. Supplementary surveys were made of coach and Inter City rail passengers. A cordon count was made of Inner London bus passengers and a small Daily Survey of drivers in the outer cordon was carried out. The surveys give a picture of travel in London on a typical weekday. Over 20 million trips were made with some four million being walks by London residents. Results give spatial information, with fine geographical detail, on the origins and destinations of trips in the area. The article concentrates mainly on the results of the Household Survey to provide an in-depth analysis of residents' travel behaviour in terms of their personal characteristics and areas where they live. The Household Survey covered travel in a full 24-hour day; roadside and rail trips surveys took place between 7am and 9pm. For the covering abstract see IRRD 875983.
