Information and Transportation Choices, Long- and Short-Term, that Link Sustainability and Livability – Phase II

This project will develop practical approaches to the delivery of accessibility related information and new decision-making models in the full time-scale range that are informed by multiple disciplines including cognitive science, behavioral economics, marketing, transportation, and urban planning. It will design information interventions intended for the full range of transportation-relevant decisions and test their impacts on people moving to the Greater Lafayette area, Indiana. The research is designed to test the sensitivity of: (i) long-term decision of residential location choice to information, and (ii) the sensitivity of short-term travel characteristics to long-term residential location choice.
