Focus of Lecture: Urban Travel: Interfaces with Psychology

View More

Sponsoring Division:

Abstract: In this talk I raise three questions: Why do people travel? How do people travel? How are people influenced by travel? After briefly addressing the first two questions, I present research investigating how psychological well-being is influenced by daily travel in urban areas. An overview is first given of different conceptualizations of well-being and their possible relation to travel, then the methods that have been developed to measure travel-related well-being, and finally the results of surveys using different methods showing how well-being in different segments of the population is influenced by travel time, travel mode, in-vehicle activities, and interruptions. Different interpretations of these findings are discussed in an attempt to give a coherent picture of the role of psychological factors in urban travel.
