About the Book

This study evaluates the influence of urban form on travel behaviour in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). A new urban form classification scheme for the division of the GTA was established based on macro and micro design features, specifically accessibility to transit and land use mix, respectively. Statistical analysis and trend analysis was conducted on the new classification scheme. Regression analysis was also conducted. The best model for each measure of travel behavior confirmed that urban form characteristics provided significant explanatory power when socio-economic characteristics were controlled. Specifically, it was evident that macro urban form had approximately 4.5 times the influence of micro urban form on automobile and transit trips. It was evident from the study findings that areas including urban form features such as mixed land uses and access to fast and effective transit, attract and encourage alternative modes and decrease the reliance on the automobile.
