The choice of travel mode is dependent not only on attitudes, demographic aspects and socioeconomic factors, but also on conditions linked with the particular journey, such as weather and road conditions, distance and journey time. How do people travel in the winter? What factors govern the choice of travel mode? These are some of the questions that are of relevance for municipalities, for example, who need to distribute operating and maintenance costs between roads, paths and cycleways. This project is divided into three segments. The report describes the results from the questionnaire study, analyses of data from the bus card payment machines and completed and evaluated road user counts. The study aims at increasing knowledge of those factors that are important in the choice of travel mode, i.e. the factors controlling redistribution of travel mode. It also aims at studying the importance of road conditions and weather in determining choice of travel mode during the winter.
