Join The Travel Behaviours Network at the Transport Systems Catapult for a mini festival on moving behaviours and connecting travel.
The transport sector contributes significantly to the production of CO2. In 2013 transport accounted for about 25% of the UK’s domestic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). Vehicle technologies and fuel choices can play a significant role in reducing emissions by decarbonising transport, but travel choices themselves are inherently complex.
While there is frequently a willingness to change travel behaviour, for example by reducing the amount people travel by car, evidence also demonstrates that there is often a resistance to changing behaviours which are considered to cause a significant lifestyle change. A government public policy landscape report indicated:
“the solution to the transport challenge does not lie only in technological innovation. It is rooted in a better understanding of human behaviour”
A three year program of research comprising 5 projects, funded to the tune of £6 million, to focus upon the determinants and incentives for changing travel behaviour, habits and practice is nearing its completion.
We would like to share with industry and government some of the complexity that surrounds behaviour, solutions that have been found to work, and how to use data to reveal new patterns.
