Infill development, which refers to new urban development on land blocks within the built-up area, has been advised and adopted as a policy tool to stop urban sprawl and to promote more sustainable travel patterns. This study compares travel patterns and attitudes of residents from three new infill neighborhoods in England's Tyne and Wear metropolitan area, using results from questionnaire surveys carried out in the summer of 2015. The results show that residents' travel behaviors differ in three neighborhoods, which have different levels of job opportunities, public transport services, walkability and other amenities. Their travel patterns have also changed a lot, comparing with before moving to the new neighborhoods. The results support the residential self-selection concept. However, it's still necessary to build new neighborhoods which can make it easier for people to travel in their preferable ways, especially for the young people who are not so tied to private cars as their parents' generations.
