Activity-travel patterns of non-workers in the San Francisco Bay Area: An exploratory analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Analysis of activity-travel patterns is an important component of any activity-based transportation planning exercise. Most of the current activity-travel literature focuses on studying the characteristics of workers. In comparison, little emphasis has been placed on studying non-worker activity-travel patterns. This paper presents the results of an exploratory analysis of the activity-travel patterns of non-workers in the San Francisco Bay Area. The attributes of a non-worker’s overall activity-travel pattern are examined in terms of three dimensions – number of stops of each activity type, trip chaining, and the temporal sequencing of activities. The paper concludes with a summary of the results and implications for transportation planning and policy analysis.
