This paper presents a synthesis of findings from a three-year research program focused on travel plans for new residential developments. Travel plans can be required through the landuse planning and approvals process as a way to encourage new residents to reduce their demand for car travel, and to use more sustainable forms of transport. However, research into travel plans at new residential developments has been limited to date, particularly in terms of understanding their effectiveness. The aim of the research program was to assess the effectiveness of travel plans for new residential developments, and to also identify opportunities to enhance their effectiveness.
