Travellers' Perception About Vehicular Emissions' and its Impact on Pedestrian Travel Behaviour

Vehicular emissions have many impacts on human health and travel behaviour. A lot of evidence on the health effects of vehicular emissions is available but very few studies have looked at the impacts on travel behaviour. The current study attempts to fill this research gap by analysing the factors that influence pedestrian travel behaviour concerning vehicle emissions based on travellers' perceptions in the Indian context. For this, a stated preference questionnaire survey was conducted and a factor-based regression followed by a mediation analysis was used to analyse the responses. Results showed that a person's perceived impacts about vehicular emissions had a greater impact on their travel behaviour. Public concern and environmental attitude lead to direct changes in travel behaviour whereas vehicle technology and negligent attitude had significant indirect effects. The present study findings are useful to the urban planning policymakers in reducing the impact of vehicular emissions on pedestrians by implementing strategies that lessen human exposure to transport emissions.
