Abstract: Based on the first edition (2016) of the Swiss Houshold Energy Demand Survey we investigate the effect of Otte’s top‐down, lifestyle‐based segmentation approach on the mode choice for commuting and leisure. Results of a multinomial logit show that Otte’s lifestyles have a significant effect on the mode choice for both commuting and leisure when controlled for income, education, age and gender. This implies that Otte’s top‐down, lifestyle‐based segmentation approach can be applied for identification of target groups and designing tailored interventions to promote sustainable means of transport. While entertainment‐oriented seem to be an appropriate target group for campaigns to change their current mode choice, the opposite is true for reflexives and hedonists.
