Abstract
We travel like never before, whether it themselves if it is a business travel (commuting), busi-ness trip or a leisure trip. Sweden´s population made about 5 billion trips in 2001, where car travel accounted for 55 percent of all trips (SIKA, 2001). Travel to and from work accounted for about 1.25 billion trips and of these trips was the car for 61 percent of all trips to and from work (SIKA, 2001). Further on was the car percentage for travel between 10 and 50 mil 75 percent, and those who had less than 5 km to work the car was for 44 percent of all trips (SIKA, 2001).
Our attitudes, behavior and our standard of living determine what transportation we use. We live in a society where people want to do as much as possible during the day´s... (More)
We travel like never before, whether it themselves if it is a business travel (commuting), busi-ness trip or a leisure trip. Sweden´s population made about 5 billion trips in 2001, where car travel accounted for 55 percent of all trips (SIKA, 2001). Travel to and from work accounted for about 1.25 billion trips and of these trips was the car for 61 percent of all trips to and from work (SIKA, 2001). Further on was the car percentage for travel between 10 and 50 mil 75 percent, and those who had less than 5 km to work the car was for 44 percent of all trips (SIKA, 2001).
Our attitudes, behavior and our standard of living determine what transportation we use. We live in a society where people want to do as much as possible during the day´s hours. Time is a factor that is experienced by most of us as “short supply”. Finding time to work, maybe train after work, spending time with our family while we plan the next day can be experienced as stressful for most of people.
This study, like other similar studies show that it is possible to influence people´s travel habits so that they choose other cleaner and more economical transportation.
This study also shows that there is willingness among people to change their attitudes and behavior if there is information on public transportation and bicycle paths. To encourage their employ to walk or bike to the work provides benefits to both the employee and the company. (Less)
