NON-MOTORISED MODES IN TRANSPORT SYSTEMS: A MULTIMODAL CHAIN PERSPECTIVE FOR THE NETHERLANDS

Non-motorised transport modes such as walking and biking are environmentally friendly, cheap and reasonably fast alternatives trips up to a distance of some 3.5 km. Their importance for long trips follows when a multimodal perspective is used: the use of t car implies short walking trips to a parking place. For public transport the same holds true for walking and biking to a public transport stop. Recognition of the multimodal character of these trips means that the number of moves made by pedestrians increase with a factor of about 6; the increase in distance is about 40%. Implications are discussed for average travel speeds, daily travel-time budgets, parking policies and policies to stimulate public transport. (A)
