ROAD TRANSPORT INFORMATICS AND BEHAVIOUR DYNAMICS

Developments in road Transport Informatics (RTI) are bound to bring revolutionary changes in road transport. There is a need to widen the scope of knowledge and understanding of the extremely complex interactions between travellers behaviour dynamics and the information technology implementations. EURONETT (Evaluation User Responses On New european Transport Technologies), a project of the European Commission's DRIVE programme is dealing with all the changes that the people will make in their journeys with the provision of information. Results from an extensive qualitative work concerned with the potential impacts of pre-trip information was carried out in Athens and Birhingham are presented. This work used an SP (Stated preference) approach to address the research issues identified. A set of information was presented to the travellers about the characteristics of relevant route, departure time and travel time to enable the estimation of route and departure time switching behaviour. Early findings, based on trade-off methodology, concentrated on pre- trip information for the return trip home (X-to-home) are presented and discussed in this paper. (A)
