IN DEFENCE OF ATTITUDINAL RESEARCH: A TRANSPORT EXAMPLE

This note discusses the use of indices of satisfaction levels in the context of changes in the magnitude of trip characteristics associated with an individual's usual transport mode for the journey to work. This is partly designed to gain a general impression on the consistency of perceptual response to hypothetical changes in modal attributes, along the attitudinal dimension. Car and train users were asked to idicate how satisfied they would be with their usual method of travel if the overall trip time (and cost) were to change in the direction of an increase and a decrease. /GMRL/
