In this paper the impact of weather, in particular rain, on urban travel demand and short trips is presented. Thee research was performed in the Netherlands where in an urban environment next to the car and public transport, the bicycle is a major transport mode. Three different research approaches were followed, i.e. the Dutch National Mobilityh Survey (OVG) and the traffic counts from an urban traffic control and information system were matched with weather data, and further a survey was held, where more specifically the impact of weather on travel behavior was recorded.
