|Abstract: ||The aging of populations has implications for trip-making behaviour and the demand
for special transport services. The London Area Travel Survey 2001 is analysed to
establish the trip-making characteristics of elderly and disabled people. Ordinal probit
models are fitted for all trips and trips by four purposes (work, shopping, personal
business and recreational), taking daily trip frequency as the latent variable. A loglinear
model is used to analyse trip length. A distinction must be made between the
young disabled, the younger elderly and the older elderly. Retired people initially
tend to make more trips, but as they get older and disabilities intervene, trip-making
tails off. Household structure, income, car ownership, possession of a drivers license,
difficulty walking and other disabilities are found to affect trip frequency and length
to a greater or lesser extent.|
