  1. 21. Car Users' Switching to Public Transport for the Work Commute

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Lars Eriksson; Karlstads universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Car-use Reduction; Work Commute; Public Transport; Experimental Simulation; Satisfaction with Travel; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The general aim of the present thesis was to investigate the determinants of car users’ switching to public transport when driving to work. Since the quality of services is particularly low in medium-sized cities, making the car a much more attractive option, the studies focus on car-use in such cities.Four studies were conducted.

  2. 22. Congestion Effects in Transport Modelling and Forecasting

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jens West; KTH.; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Transport investments and policies are increasingly turned towards dealing with transport congestion rather than with shortening the potential free flow travel time. However, appraisal methodologies for projects meant to reduce congestion are relatively less well developed compared to methodologies for projects aiming to reduce travel times. READ MORE

  3. 23. Evaluation of bus priority strategiesin coordinated traffic signal systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Wahlstedt; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bus priority; public transport priority; transit priority; PTSP; TSP; traffic signal; traffic signal control; traffic signal control systems; self-optimising signal control; PRIBUSS; SIL simulation; traffic simulation; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Increasing congestion and environmental concerns have evoked an interest in promoting urban Public Transport (PT) the last decades. In 2012 the City of Stockholm adopted an “Urban mobility strategy” stating that public transport, cycling and walking should be prioritised over cars in central Stockholm. READ MORE

  4. 24. Effects of long-term access to ICT-mediated travel information services - Users’ assessments and reported behavioural changes

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Tor Skoglund; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ITS - Intelligent Transport Services and Systems; ICT-mediated traveller information; Navigation; Traffic information; Real-time information systems; Travel Planner; Co-modal Travel Planner; Multi-modal Travel Planner; Public transport; Transit; Behavioural change; Assessments; Action spaces;

    Abstract : Great optimism has for some time framed the potential effects that access to ICT-mediated travel information services (ICTIS) have on travellers. Little has however been known about real-life long-term effects of access to ICTIS. The aim of this thesis was thus to create a basis for understanding the role of ICTIS in urban transport of people.

  5. 25. Public Transportation in a Systems Perspective A Conceptual Model and an Analytical Framework for Design and Evaluation

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Stig E.R. Franzén; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; public transportation; passenger transport; urban transport; systems perspective; systems design; conceptual model; human-machine system; systems engineering; cybernetics; control theory;

    Abstract : Today urban areas are faced with problems like traffic congestion, air pollution, and limited accessibility and transport policy issues are focused on the "sustainable city of the future". For decision-makers the crucial question is how, with limited financial resources, a system for public transportation should be designed and developed to provide attractive travel and transport services.
