Abstract: Children are not regarded as real actors in the domain of transportation. Most of the time when they appear in this domain they are talked about: their traffic safety, their health, … . That children's travel behavior could influence strongly their parents' travel behavior and future developments is something that is taken into account just recently. In the first part of this paper we describe the differences between Flemish children's travel behavior, based on their attitudes towards transportation modes. Five different clusters of children are distinguished with a strong typology. In the second part we explain the use of three travel modes (public bus, bike and car) by means of logistic regression models. We show which variables have an effect in the use of one mode on the two reporting days.
