Abstract The aim of the study was to compare the daily pattern of the walking or cycling for commuting of a national sample of adults according to age. A cross-sectional study was conducted with a household survey of 4,489 individuals from the city of Santiago, Chile. We used valid data of 3,477 adults with age analyzed in 4 age groups: 15-29, 30-44, 45-59 e >59. The subjective evaluation of the time of walking or cycling in minutes was performed in 3 settings a) in leisure and physical activity-LEX, b) in the occupational-WK, c) in the commute to work and school-COM. The analysis of walking and bicycling were performed as a daily self-report every 30 minutes, 14 hours/day on weekday. Chi Square test was used to compare groups (p<.05). Results:<\b>
6.4%, 3.1% and 9.6% reported to walk or cycle on LEX, WK, and COM respectively. The average time of walking and bicycling was 55.4 ± 44.1 minutes/day. The time during LEX was 51.4 ± 44.5 min/day, commuting 46.3 ± 34.8 min/day, and WK was 51.3 ± 38.4 min/day. According to age categories (15-29, 30-44, 15-59 e +60) LEX time was 53, 43, 52 and 61 min/day respectively. WK time was 49, 46, 41 and 35, COM time was 54, 50, 48 and 49. There were no statistical differences among groups. Conclusion:<\b>
the commuting pattern does not differ by age or in the context which is performed in adults of a metropolitan city.
