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 ...
Intelligent traffic management is widely acknowledged as a
means to optimise the utilisation of existing infrastructure
capacities. A major requirement for intelligent traffic
management is the collection of high quality ...
Response rates are used by analysts to assess survey
quality: higher response rates are usually desired to reduce
the incidence of non-response bias. The response rate is
simply defined as the ratio of the number of ...

This paper presents an integrated microsimulation urban passenger
transport model system (TRESIS) for evaluating the impact of a large
number of interrelated policy instruments on urban travel behavior and
the environment. ...
There is increasing interest in the potential to simulate household
travel survey data as an alternative to collecting large sample
household travel surveys, or as a means to augment sample sizes, well
beyond what can ...
The paper reviews the recent franchising of public transport
services in Melbourne, Australia, to assess the extent to which
the objectives of the franchising were achieved. The major
franchisee has failed only a short ...
The popularity of stated choice (SC) experiments has spurned a
large number of design strategies within which to study choice
behaviour. When the amount of information provided increases, we
often wonder how an individual ...
The 90s saw a noticeable growth in the use of competitive
tendering as a way of selecting bus operators to deliver a
range of services that had previously been supplied by
governments, mainly driven by pressures to ...
Traditional survey methods are fast reaching their “use by” dates.
It is much harder for researchers to contact households through the
telephone as a result of call screening and answering machine
devices. In relation ...
This paper explores the influence of the dimensions of stated
choice (SC) designs on the value of travel time savings. Utilising
principles of experimental design, 16 choice designs are embedded
within a global design ...
