Seminar on Longitudinal Methods for Understanding and Modelling Travel Behaviour
Longitudinal methods have been used to provide important insights on behaviour in other policy areas (e.g. healthcare and education) but up to now have been relatively little employed by transport planners in the UK.
With the emphasis in transport policy on facilitating behavioural change this 1-day seminar explored what can be gained from longitudinal analysis of travel behaviour and what is preventing its greater use.
The seminar, organised by Dr Kiron Chatterjee, took place at the Department for Transport, Great Minster House, London on Wednesday 9 November. The seminar included presentations from research clients, researchers and practitioners as well as workshop sessions to explore the future of longitudinal methods.
