This paper is concerned with trends in travel patterns. Surveys were carried out in order to provide up to date figures for the assessement of the impact of development proposals. The surveys were carried out in residential areas of Bristol during 1992 and 1994 and compared with information collected in 1983. Details are given of survey methodology. The information collected included a) peak period trip rates, b) 12 hour (7am-7pm) trip rates, c) daily variation in trip rates and d) vehicle type. The influence of car ownership rates, household size and other factors on trip rate patterns is discussed. The findings include a longer peak period, increased travel on Saturdays and a disappointing level of cycling. For the covering abstract see IRRD 876474.
