Earlier studies on social networks and activity-travel behaviour highlight a significant relationship between those two: people are inclined to devote more available time to their closest social ties through joint activities and travel. The purpose of this study is to examine thoroughly how individuals allocate their time for their personal social network members and resulting spatial manifestations. In order to investigate such relationships, mobile phone tracking data collected over one year study period among 40 individuals and related interviews are used.
