Rotterdam is a the second largest city in the Netherlands with many transport possibilities. The largest group in Rotterdam is the lower income group. It is therefore important to know which choices and perceptions they have towards transport. This qualitative research investigated the travel behavior of the lower income groups in Rotterdam. The results show that there are two factors that influence the behavior of the respondents, safety and price. Furthermore, it is shown that the respondents are restricted to their own residential area due to the price and safety of public transport. The characteristics of Traffic Poverty has been found which would suggest that further research in this area is necessary.
