    Abstract During 1997, McDermott Miller was commissioned by the Wellington
    Regional Council to undertake a research project into the social benefits
    the community wants from the Region’s transport system.

    The Regional Council wanted to expand its knowledge of the regional
    community’s social wants from the transport system (eg timely access to
    the workplace from home), its relative preferences for meeting those
    social wants (eg importance of timely access to the workplace compared
    to timely access to shopping) and variations in those preferences
    amongst different sections of the community (eg commuters who may
    value timely access to the workplace most, but retired people may value
    access to leisure most).
