The report documents results from a study of the use of a large number of P&R facilities and surveys of users at selected sites. By plotting the home address of all the car owners we found that more than 50 % of the car drivers live within 3 kilometres from the park- and-ride facility (measured as the crow flies). A majority of the park-and-ride facilities are full early in the morning. Nearly all the journeys end in central areas of a major city. Therefore, most driver do not see the possibility of driving all the way as an alternative. In the central city, parking is scarce and costly, the roads are often congested and there are toll cordons closer to the cities. About 25 percent of the users of P&R facilities have children younger than 6 years.
