EUROPE ON THE MOVE: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN EUROPEAN COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPORT ACTIVITY RESEARCH. CHAPTER 7. INFORMATION AND COMMUTERS BEHAVIOUR: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS

This chapter describes part of a study to examine the potential impacts of road transport information on the performance of transport systems, in particular the effect on congestion. It forms a pre- simulation phase and examines: a) factors which discriminate between commuters who change their travel behaviour and those who don't, and b) uses these factors in a causal model to estimate the effect of information on drivers' route choice. The study is based on data from surveys carried out in Israel and Sweden. Two thirds of commuters were shown likely to change their route when notified about congestion. Sensitivity to congestion was shown to be dependent on the level of service offered by the network. For the covering abstract see IRRD 863675.
