THE JOURNEY TO WORK. A BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS

The general objective of this study is to build behavioural models of the decision-making process of commuters in the Dublin connurbation. The models are intended to improve understanding of modal choice determinants, thus assisting urban transport authorities to influence modal split by altering pricing and investment policies in order to achieve the most efficient economic balance (in cost-benefit terms) between private and public transport. This volume contains 8 chapters as follows: 1, introduction; 2, models of model split; 3, towards a theory of mode choice; 4, hypotheses formulation; 5, sample survey methodology; 6, hypotheses testing and model building; 7, modal split predictions and the value of time; and 8, discussion and conclusion. /TRRL/
