The effects of different forms of ICT on accessibility – a behavioural model and numerical examples

This article develops a utilitarian model that captures the effects of different forms of information and communication technologies (ICT) on accessibility. The role of constraints that an individual may face when making decisions is explicitly considered, as well as the presence of uncertainty. Two major forms of ICT are considered: travel information provided by ICT and teleactivities that may be performed using the ICT. The model is developed to measure the combined effects of both travel information and teleactivities as well as their potential interaction effects on accessibility. Numerical examples show the plausibility of the model in capturing the effects of different forms of ICT on accessibility and reflect the combined effects of travel information and teleactivities on accessibility in different situations.
