Young People’s Life Choices and Travel Behavior

Sunday, January 10, 2016, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center 2016
Junyi Zhang, Hiroshima University; Makoto Chikaraishi, Hiroshima University; Abolfazl Mohammadian, University of Illinois, Chicago, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Traveler Behavior and Values (Changed to AEP30 on 4/15/2020); Standing Committee on Effects of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on Travel Choices (Changed to AEP35 on 4/15/2020); and Standing Committee on Transportation Network Modeling (Changed to AEP40 on 4/15/2020)

Transport policy makers must understand people’s life-choice decisions and travel behavior. Relevant studies have left knowledge about young people very limited. This workshop presents recent research on young people’s life choices and travel behavior including; migration, the built environment, car ownership, car-sharing, bike-sharing, use of information and communication technology, social networks, activity travel scheduling, departure time and route choice, and subjective well-being.
