    • Abstract:
      This paper uses the 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey (NPTS) to examine trip chaining behavior by adult men and women traveling Monday through Friday. Whereas travel by single adults of both sexes, and by men and women in households without children is rather similar, travel by men and women in households with smaller children is starkly different. Women have always made trips for sustaining the household such as shopping trips and family errands. The increase in women's participation in the labor force has pushed these trips into the non-work time periods. In addition, many employed women with children drop children at school or day-care on the way to work. Therefore, non-work related trips are being chained together between home and work. This trip chaining behavior is especially prevalent by women in households with children under 5 years of age. The number and purpose of the stops made in these chains is examined here, as is the duration of the time at destinations for different purposes. The number of stops made by individuals in different family composition types, known as household life cycle in the NPTS, is also shown. References, 16p.
