Title: Commuting and residential relocation in the metropolitan fringe
Authors: Miron, John
Issue Date: 1978
Publisher: Joint program in Transportation at the University of Toronto and York University
Citation: Research report No. 49, June 1978
Abstract: In most empirical studies of commuting behaviour, commuting flows are seen to be responsive to the spatial patterns of residence and work sites. Drawing upon the residential relocation literature, it is suggested that the rates of change of these spatial patterns over time also affects the pattern of commuting. An expirical investigation is described which uses data on commuting flows from fringe areas into the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto in 1964 and 1971. Recent residential relocation is found to have a significant effect on the level and direction of commuting. Further, this effect is found to be similar in 1964 and 1971 suggesting a stability in commuting behaviour.
