Data obtained from a questionnaire survey on the so-called park-and-ride (P&R), i. e., a travel mode under which car users in suburban areas travel to a metropolitan area by car to a local railroad station, park the car there, and continue their ride by train, are analyzed. The analysis shows that the P&R can be classified into "access-type P&R" and "prime-type P&R". The access-type P&R is classified again into the "distant-type P&R" and "close-type P&R" according to access modes. The parking lots for the access-type P&R should be located at a certain distance from the station to give priority to the distant-type P&R and to save the capacity and cost.
