Factors affecting travel behaviour choice

This project comprises of four discrete research studies, each of which plays a role in the understanding of the factors that are related to behaviour for travel. Part One of this project comprised of a literature review on behaviour change theories/models that might be useful to underpin interventions to change travel behaviour choice; and the comparison of two theories. In part two of the research two separate studies were conducted: a literature review and analysis of the online instrument that sought to consider differences between the two groups with a view to determining if separate interventions are required for different groups. The literature review focused on active travel (cycling and walking) and the use of public transport. In part three the collaborative economy or sharing economy is considered. It is growing at a rapid pace and is making a significant impact on business and society and can be defined as systems that facilitate the sharing of underused assets or services, between individuals or organisations, with or without charge. The sharing economy domain is different to traditional business activities in significant but sometimes subtle ways. For example, sharing activities focus on networks, are asset light, depend on information and technology platforms, are customer centric and can provide on-demand real-time services. In part four this futuristic work considered the intersection of technology (low and high takeup) with mobility (private and shared) and how these aspects would affect travel behaviour in the future.
