This paper uses path analysis (model) to explore the drivers of public transport and walking use within an urban environment, using a quasi-longitudinal data on ten selected communities in the metropolitan area of Tyne and Wear, North East England. The models for public transport and walking hypothesise direct and indirect effects including built environment factors, social demographics and attitudes and perceptions of travel. The results show that changes in public transport use are caused mostly by socio-demographic and travel attitude characteristics while changes in walking are caused mostly by built environment characteristics.
