[tweetmeme http://www.URL.com] Hannah M. Badland , Nick Garrett  and Grant M. Schofield of the Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition, Auckland University of Technology, have published a recent paper titled „How Does Car Parking Availability and Public Transport Accessibility Influence Work-Related Travel Behaviors?“  This study investigated the relationships between car parking, public transport, travel behaviors, and health outcomes for adults (n = 1,188) traveling to a worksite. Public transport was used for 12.1% of the work-related commute. Those who had higher levels of walking, no worksite car park access, lived proximal to a public transport stop, had limited automobile availability, traveled to the main business district, perceived public transport as accessible, or did not have company car access were more likely to use public transportation. Accordingly, proximal residential transit stops and restrictions for company car accessibility and parking at the worksite are needed.
