One of the key challenges for cities in the future is urban growth and the mobility problem accompanies this expansion. This paper investigates how the public transport system influences travel behavior by analyzing the relationship between the quality of public transport and modal choice using the data from the 2010 Netherlands National Travel Survey and the SNAMUTS framework. In this way it contributes to the limited research in this subject. The empirical analysis indicates that the quality of public transport does influence modal choice. A more frequent service and shorter travel times to other nodes increases the likelihood of people travelling via public transport
