In this project we have made a postal survey among rail commuters in the Oslo area and their mode choice for access to the railway station. 34 per cent of the commuters walk to the station, 24 per cent use park-and-ride, 20 per cent use bike-and-ride, 13 percent go by bus and 8 per cent use kiss-and-ride. The degree of competition for cars within the family has great importance in the mode choice for access. Commuters who choose park-and-ride have marginal profits by choosing car on the entire trip. Bus-users have the highest use of time on the entire trip. The commuters are not satisfied with the parking security for car or bike at the railway station. The problem arises if the station is in the rural area. More than half of the commuters have special activities like shopping to do during the trip. 1 of 10 has to bring children to school or kindergarten during their trip.
