PSYCHOMETRIC TECHNIQUES IN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: TWO EXAMPLES

The two studies presented here are part of a growing interest in social theories and techniques applied to better understand human behavior with regard to transportation decisions. As more and more transportation researchers become familiar with the potential applications of these social theories and techniques and specifically with psychometrics, models reflecting the causal determinants of travel can be developed. These models have the potential to forecast demand for innovative transport modes. This can be done by incorporating changing attitudes of people toward system characteristics which are different from those of presently available modes. /GMRL/
