dc.description.abstractWe present detailed information on the distances people walk for transport purposes in Brisbane, Australia. The data is derived from the South East Queensland Travel Survey 2003-04 - Brisbane Statistical Division, a household travel survey providing information on the weekday travel of 10 931 respondents, weighted and expanded for a city population of 1 615 579 persons. The vast majority of non-motorised travel recorded was walking for transport, whether this comprised trips using the walking mode only, or whether it was walking made to and from public transport. We report the full distributions of the distances walked for transport from homes to other places, as well as the walk travel made between places other than homes. Single-mode walk trips are longer than the walk trip stages made to and from public transport, both in terms of distance and time. However, there are more than twice as many walk trip stages made to and from public transport. The median and 85th percentile distances people walk from home to all other places using the walk mode only are 780 m and 1.45 km respectively; from home to all public transport stops, 600 m and 1.30 km; and from public transport stops to end destinations, 470 m and 1.09 km.
