Modeling and Analysis of Excess Commuting with Trip Chains
- SociologyAnnals of the American Association of Geographers
This research finds that traditional excess commuting studies underestimate both actual and optimal commute, while overestimate excess commuting, and proposes a trip-chaining-based model to integrate trip- chaining behavior into excess commuting.
A novel excess commuting framework: Considering commuting efficiency and equity simultaneously
- Computer ScienceEnvironment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science
This paper proposes a novel excess commuting framework using a Greedy-Initialisation-based Genetic Algorithm, where the optimal commute accounts for commuting efficiency and equity and commuting-frequency variation simultaneously.
Commuting Variability by Wage Groups in Baton Rouge, 1990–2010
Analysis of commuting variability (in both distance and time) across wage groups as well as stability over time using the Census Transportation Planning Package data for 1990 through 2010 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana uncovers the lasting poor mobility of the lowest wage workers between 1990 and 2010.

Temporal Trends of Intraurban Commuting in Baton Rouge, 1990–2010
- SociologyGeographies of Mobility
Based on the 1990–2010 Census Transportation Planning Package data of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this research analyzes the temporal trends of commuting patterns in both time and distance to find that average commute distance kept climbing, whereas average commute time increased between 1990 and 2000 but then slightly dropped toward 2010.
Effects of spatial units and travel modes on urban commuting demand modeling
Understanding the relationships between commuting demand and built environment (BE) features is advantageous in alleviating travel pressure during the commuting period. Numerous works have explored…
Integrating road carrying capacity and traffic congestion into the excess commuting framework: The case of Los Angeles
The excess commuting framework has advanced a series of metrics through which a city or a region’s jobs-housing balance and commuting efficiency can be measured. This study seeks to add to the…

Extensions to the Concept of Excess Commuting
When people commute to work longer or farther than the actual spatial arrangement of homes and workplaces suggest they could be commuting, people are engaging in excess commuting. In the aggregate,…
Household Excess Travel and Neighborhood Characteristics: Associations and Trade-Offs
- Economics, Sociology
Excess commuting, the amount of travel not required by the distribution of jobs and houses, has been used to examine commuting efficiency and the relevance of commuting for location decisions. This…
Explaining Intraurban Variations of Commuting by Job Proximity and Workers' Characteristics
Based on the Census for Transportation Planning Package (CTPP) 1990, in this paper I will attempt to explain intraurban variations of commuting time and distance in Columbus, OH. Whereas commuting…

Urban Commuting Journeys Are Not "Wasteful"
- EconomicsJournal of Political Economy
Do urban workers commute too much? Bruce Hamilton (1982) was the first to raise the question whether urban workers' commuting journeys are too long or, in his terms, "wasteful." He argued that the…
Disaggregate Journey-to-Work Data: Implications for Excess Commuting and Jobs–Housing Balance
Much of the analysis to date on the topic of excess commuting and jobs–housing balance deals with total commuting flow, undifferentiated with respect to worker and job characteristics. In this paper…
