And how much could be switched Distribution of round tours on transport means and travel length : Distribution of round tours on transport means and travel length Distribution of kilometres on transport means and travel length : Distribution of kilometres on transport means and travel length Maximum possible switch from car to bike : Maximum possible switch from car to bike Maximum possible switch from car to walking : Maximum possible switch from car to walking The discrete choice modelDelimiting : The discrete choice modelDelimiting Only taking round tours into account which means the whole travel from home and back to home again.
