Abstract

This paper reports the findings of analyses, conducted to identify regularities and differences underlying various aspects of activity-travel patterns across a set of cities, regions in the world. Activity-travel patterns, derived from activity diary data collected in Portland (USA), Midlands (UK), Fukuoka (Japan), Canadian metropolitan areas, and the South-Rotterdam region (The Netherlands) are compared. The results indicate that although idiosyncratic differences exist between the city regions, there is also considerable evidence of similarities between the city regions.
