The literature-based research is complemented by interviews with a
modestly sized but diverse and informed sample of respondents. The
interviews ‘test’ the conventional wisdom in the literature against the
realities of ...
Using a sample of 245 direct petrol price elasticities of car travel
collected from 52 published mode choice studies, a random
coefficient regression model is estimated to account for
heterogeneity in the influence of ...

Data is typically gathered from an individual respondent who
represents the group or the household. This individual is often
identified as the “primary decision maker” and is often asked to
provide responses as a proxy ...
Global Positioning System (GPS) devices have been considered as a substitute for conventional travel diaries for some time. However, only in the past year has a serious effort been made to trial replacement of travel diaries ...
Against a backdrop of an increasing trend towards prepay-only bus services in Sydney, Forest
Coach Lines (Forest), a private bus operator operating services in Northern Sydney, has been
surprised that uptake of their ...
This paper details the development and application of a Stated Choice experiment designed to explore motorists sensitivities to a kilometre-based charging regime focused around crash-risk reduction. Hypothetical responses ...
Global Position System (GPS) devices as a substitute for
conventional travel diaries have been considered for some time
but have only in the past year or so been seriously trialled as
replacements. GPS devices cannot ...
This paper details the development of a GPS/GPRS data collection solution for a longitudinal (twelve week) study of driving behaviour in Sydney, investigating behavioural responses to variable rate charging. The study calls ...
There is growing interest in using kilometre-based financial
mechanisms to encourage safer driving practices and reduce
accident claims. The rationale behind such an approach is that in
addition to driver characteristics ...
There is growing interest in establishing a mechanism to account for scale heterogeneity across individuals (essentially the variance of a variance term or the standard deviation of utility over different choice situations), ...
Between 2005 and 2006, a TravelSmart project was introduced
in targeted suburbs within metropolitan Adelaide, South
Australia. A component of the project was to provide
participants with tools to assist them to change ...
Driver boredom is an area of driver behaviour that has received

We study a heterogeneous full-truckload vehicle routing
problem based on the case of a trucking company in
Malaysia, where trucks originate from a depot and are
dispatched to various parts of the service area. Each ...

Stated preference (SP) experiments are becoming an increasingly
popular survey methodology for investigating air travel choice
behaviour. Nevertheless, some evidence suggests that SP
experiments do not mirror decisions ...
There is an extensive and growing literature on the design and use
of stated choice experiments. Such experiments are generally
regarded as the preferred framework within which to collect data
that is able to reveal the ...
Induced travel is the increase in travel attributable to
transportation projects that increase capacity. This paper
reviews the causes and impacts of induced travel. It discusses
some of the debates in the literature ...
In what may eventually be called the fastest recovery from
a recession in modern business we should be considering
the lessons emerging from the 2008/9 financial crisis which
witnessed the demise of corporate giants ...
This paper revisits a number of themes that have played a crucial
role in the debate on alternative contracting regimes for the
provision and bus and coach services. We have selected seven
crucial issues to reflect on: ...
During the implementation of a major regional household travel
survey, known as the Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and
Activity 2007 (VISTA07) in Victoria, Australia, a pilot survey
was undertaken using GPS to ...
