Final Report
Summary:
The main question addressed by this research was what effect do new public transport investments have on car ownership. The project compared car ownership levels in areas close to good public transport facilities with car ownership in control areas in 17 cities and in five countries, in each case informed, as far as possible, by; characteristics and history of the areas; differences in household size; income or socio-economic status; housing type; public transport mode i.e. train,metro, tram and bus; other transport and planning policies in force; and the period of time over which adaptation has occurred.
