THE ATTITUDES OF DRIVERS TOWARD MASS-TRANSIT

THE REPORT IS A STUDY OF THE ATTITUDES OF DRIVERS TOWARD MASS TRANSIT IN THE MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL METROPOLITAN AREA. PERHAPS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE OF THE STUDIES WAS A PERSONAL INTERVIEW SURVEY OF APPROXIMATELY 600 RESIDENTS OF THE TWIN CITIES AREA. ALSO A FIVE-COUNTY AREA WAS SAMPLED BY MAIL QUESTIONNAIRE. THE SURVEY HAD THREE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: TO IDENTIFY THE BASIC MOTIVATIONS FOR DRIVING, TO EXAMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING NEGATIVE FACTORS AS A MEANS OF INDUCING DRIVERS TO USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, AND TO DETERMINE WHAT POSITIVE FACTORS COULD BE USED TO ATTRACT RIDERSHIP. /NTIS/
