By combining The national travel survey and The central business enterprise registry we describe relationship between residential areas and choice of transport means. Reduction in car use on the journey to work in the cities occurs if the residence areas have resources and services related to everyday life that can be reached on foot or by bike. Analyses show that those who have grocery stores near home uses car to work to a lesser degree than those who do not. This applies primarily in Oslo and Bergen. The analysis also shows that, where there are 5,000 jobs within 2.5 km the use of car is lower than in areas without this offer. These conditions apply even if people have free parking at work.
