HUMAN JUDGMENT AND DECISION PROCESSES IN APPLIED SETTINGS. 3: INFORMATION INTEGRATION IN TRANSPORTATION DECISIONS

This paper describes a programme of research in which behavioural models are applied to problems in transportation. The research pursues two major goals: applying established behavioural techniques and models to further the understanding of transportation consumer decision processes, and using the behaviour in new decision-making contexts to further the development of theoretical models. Methodological approaches (traditional and information integration approaches) are outlined, and the results of empirical studies (judgments of travel expense, modal choice) are presented. Those studies are discussed with respect to their implications for model development and for transportation researchers. The author concludes by describing future research needs. /TRRL/
