Abstract TU) performed by the Danish Transport Research Institute. It contains three parts, all with the shopping trips in focus. 1. Statistical research of TU data from the entire country without spatial reference 2. Analysis of TU data from the Copenhagen area with spatial reference 3. Modeling of home-shopping trips in the Copenhagen area. In the first part an overview of the shopping behavior is established. Essential parts to point out are: The overall average shopping trip length is 6 km, 68 % of all shopping trips have the residence as starting point, which makes home-shopping trips representative of the shopping trips in general when it comes to mode choice. Furthermore there are studies of household size influence on shopping behavior and shopping trips during year, month, week and day. In second part, an investigation has been carried out to try out the thesis, that there is an coherence between the shopping destinations station vicinity and the mode choice for shopping trips, like the one found for home-work trips. The analysis showed to be influenced by too much noise, to give a clear conclusion. Further fragmentation might meet the expected results, however data is not comprehensive enough to bear further fracmentation. In the last part, trip distribution and mode choice is modeled in a nested logit model, using TU data as RP-data and OTM-zonestructure as home and destination zones. The nest structure was mode choice conditioned by the destination choice. The final model gives fine results and is in many ways consistent with a similar model carried out by Rand Europe for Danish Transport Research Institute. However the model suffer from the fact, that OTM zones is much different in size. The model is hard to benchmark, since the exact distribution and mode choice for shopping centers is not known.
