The objective of the research described in this paper is to determine how the use of specific modes of travel affects the relationships between out-of-home activity duration and the travel required for such activities. We proceed by constructing a model that interrelates classes of out-of-home activities and the travel required to participate in these activities, all as a function of population sociodemographic characteristics and the modes of travel used by the population.
