The presented study supplies evidence for a decrease in car use among the millennial cohort, based on logistic regression models. Controlling for relevant variables in transport literature, a negative effect on the probability of car use was observed. Density, as well as Residential Self Selection, were also found to influence the modal choice of millennials, lowering the probability of car use. Limited evidence was found for differences in the millennial cohort in 2016 and their same-aged counterparts in 2006.
