Media attention to truck safety in recent years has highlighted the
lack of scientific evidence on the real causes of heavy vehicle
crashes. The paper examines the hypothesis that the underlying
causes of unsafe on-road ...
Stated choice (SC) experiments represent the dominant data
paradigm in the study of behavioral responses of individuals,
households as well as other organizations, yet little is known
about the sample size requirements ...
Before and after surveys are designed to detect a change in
travel-behaviour following an intervention policy, such as a
travel-modification program. Longitudinal panel surveys are
the preferred method for detecting ...
In Lombardy public subsidies to bus companies have increased in the last ten years, while market
share and quality of public transport have declined. In 1996, the Lombardy Region began a reform of
public local transport. ...
There is a small but growing interest in traveller behaviour research on investigating ways to identify and quantify degrees of belief (as subjective probabilities or other propositions) associated with behavioural responses, ...

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 ...
An efficient and effective freight transport strategy can be aided
by early professional contributions from key stakeholders. One
broad group who have historically been given limited opportunity
to influence the drafting ...
In this paper we investigate the value of travel time savings.
Estimation of this is in most cases based on samples using a
specific mode. We use a mixed logit model to estimate the
VTTS together with an auxiliary probit ...

Developments in data and modeling paradigms in choice
analysis are occurring at a fast pace. A review of activity
leading up to each IATBR conference shows progress on
many fronts. This paper takes a selective view of ...
The selling of long-distance travel as a package has its origins in the latter half of the last
century and the practice has been instrumental in turning travel into a consumer item.
Packaging is found to be significant ...
The behavioural value of travel time savings (VTTS)
remains a controversial data item in the evaluation of
transport projects. Over the last 40 years we have seen
numerous empirical studies seeking to enrich our
This paper investigates the design issues of a shipping network when cargo demand increases rapidly. A gravity-type model for origin-destination (OD) demand estimation is first presented and calibrated based on the current ...
Over the past decade, there has been a substantial volume of
research on short sea shipping and related national maritime
transport regulation. In spite of significant support for the policy of
growing the volume of ...
Analysts are increasingly making use of pivot style Stated
Choice (SC) data in the estimation of choice models. These
datasets often contain a reference alternative whose
attributes remain invariant across replications ...
A feature of recent developments in choice models that
enable estimation of the distribution of willingness to pay
(WTP), is that the sign of the distribution can change over the
range. Behaviourally this often makes ...

It is common practice in choice modelling to include the socioeconomic characteristics of other members of a household in the utility expressions associated with the preferences of a particular individual. By including ...
Students undertaking a final year elective subject in Transportation
Planning at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, were given
the opportunity to work on a practical project for which there was an
method has been developed to synthesize household travel
survey data from a combination of Census and national transport
survey data sources. The procedure, described in other papers,
involves creating distributions of ...
