Abstract: In modern societies, mobility is considered to be vital for human development. In order to lead an efficient policy and achieve environmental goals, governments require reliable predictions of travel behavior. In this paper, the travel time expenditure in Flanders is investigated. The focus is put on the time spent on commuting. Two modeling approaches are used for the analysis of daily travel time expenditure, namely the Poisson regression approach and the classical linear regression approach. In this paper it is shown that socio-demographics, day-effects and transportation preferences are contributing significantly in the explanation of variability in daily commuting time and that multiplicative effects of the transportation preferences form good approximations of the travel time ratios.
