 Frontiers in Land Use and Travel Research

Show Summary Details


This article examines research concerning land use and travel behavior in relation to urban planning. It summarizes the standard approach to studying land use and travel behavior, and identifies the key issues that should be the focus of planning research going forward. The analysis reveals that the literature on land use and travel behavior has so far focused almost exclusively on hypothesis tests regarding the association between the built environment and travel, and on the magnitude of the associations.

Keywords: land use; travel behavior; urban planning; built environment; hypothesis tests
