UNDERSTANDING TRAVEL

This paper discusses various points relating to a clearer understanding of the nature of travel. Definitions are suggested for various commonly used terms, with implications for both research and policy. Three particular questions are discussed: the nature of constraints on mobility and their effects, the importance of understanding travel in the context of activity, and the definition of groups "in need" of better opportunities for access and/or travel. /Author/
