The relevance of accessibility as a concept in transport planning is established, emphasising the difference between perceptual and measurable variables. A range of analytical forms used to quantify accessibility is reviewed and categorised into a coherent summary. Consumer demand theory is used to give behavioural justification for the inclusion of accessibility into the travel modelling process. Some new analyses of the Ballarat transportation study data are interspersed to demonstrate both the potential and the limitations of these readily available sources, and to highlight the limitations of the current modelling process. /Author/TRRL/
