MIXED LAND-USES AND COMMUTING: EVIDENCE FROM THE AMERICAN HOUSING SURVEY

This paper investigates how mixed land-uses influence the commuting choices of residents from large metropolitan areas using data from the 1985 American Housing Survey. The analysis examines the effects of mixed-use levels as well as other features of the built environment like residential densities on three measures of transportation demand: commuting mode choice, commuting distance and household vehicle ownership levels. The effects of land-use environments on mode choice are modeled using binomial logit analysis.
