For the vast majority of workers in the Kwinana Industrial Strip the private motor vehicle is largely preferred as the means of accomplishing the journey to and from work. This high level of private vehicle usage provides a greater opportunity for the journey to work to become multi-functional. This study reveals both the type and distribution of stops made by workers differs with age, gender, employment category, and residential postcode. From these findings it is suggested that, If any attempt is made to move people out of cars and onto any future public transport, the differing needs of the workforce must be addressed. That is, public transport transfer nodes must become focal points in that they provide services appropriate to worker needs.
