Abstract

Numerous studies of the interaction between land use and transport have been carried out in the past. In this paper we evaluate a selection of Dutch studies. Before reviewing the studies, we present a conceptual model for passenger transport (section 2), give an overview of the way in which land-use influences travel behaviour (section 3). We also give an overview of transport in Dutch land-use policy plans (section 4) and a categorisation of research (section 5). We then review empirical studies (section 6) and model-simulation studies (section 7) of the impact of land-use on transport. This is followed by a synthesis of the results and look at the transferability of results to other countries (section 8), a discussion of the policy implications of our findings (section 9) and some suggestions for further research (section 10).
