Trip frequency may also decrease because trip chaining is more likely with shorter distances. Let us assume, for example, individual A, living in a remote suburb with a supermarket within 10 minutes’ travel time. Another individual, B, living in a compact town, has a similar shop within 5 minutes’ travel time. Hence it can be seen that compact urban designs offer the opportunity to travel less. However, let us now consider individual B, living in the compact town. Although there is a supermarket within 5 minutes’ travel time, there is also a cheap and large hypermarket in the city centre – within 10 minutes’ travel time.
