User response to autonomous vehicles and emerging mobility systems

Mobility systems are evolving with a fast pace all around the world with the emergence of autonomous vehicles, shared mobility solutions and mobility as a service systems (MaaS), with largely unknown implications. The way these systems affect vehicle ownership decisions and travel behavior in general will have critical impacts on our future. The papers presented in this special issue represent the state of the art in understanding changing mobility systems. The special issue gathers papers from the transportation Research Board (in collaboration with the Standing Committees on Travel Behavior and Values [ADB10] and Demand Forecasting [ADB40]) as part of a long-standing collaboration with Transportation. Our special issue presents five notable papers that were originally presented at the 2018 TRB Annual Meeting. The first paper presents an experiment which mimics potential life with a self-driving vehicle. The following two focus on the factors associated with autonomous vehicle adoption, and use data from two different regions in US. The fourth paper presents the outcomes of a field test from Sweden. Finally, the fifth paper presents a modeling approach that matches ride-share trips in a macroscopic travel demand model.
