This thesis aims to contribute to the policy debate on the complexity of passenger rail markets and to provide recommendations for the Dutch market. An extensive literature review has been conducted to identify the policy issues that must be discussed when dealing with passenger rail markets. These issues are structured in a theoretical...

The transportation system in Israel is facing a crisis due to its heavy reliance on private vehicles. To shift towards sustainable mobility, improving public transport quality in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area is crucial. This research investigates the preferences of Tel Aviv citizens regarding transport projects aimed at enhancing public...

Hierarchy is a network property that identifies the organisation and importance of network elements. Public transport systems consist of stops organised by connections, which can be regarded as networks. In a Public Transport Network (PTN) with a high hierarchy, the number of elements gradually decreases as their importance increases, where the...

If people repeat choices in daily travel behaviour under stable conditions, over time this can form habitual travel behaviour and lead to inertia. If travellers face a new metro line, to what extent does their habitual travel behaviour affect their willingness to use this new transport alternative. This study investigate the inertia effects in a...

To analyze latent multiple specific patterns in the line-based public transport daily delay occurrence, a data-driven explorative analysis of public transport daily delay spatial-temporal distribution pattern is performed based on the k-means clustering algorithm. Firstly, we used aggregated daily delay profile to visualize how the delay is...

Demand for long-distance transport has been steadily increasing over the last years, worsening the environmental impact of the transport sector. Despite European governmental bodies and policy-makers directed considerable efforts towards the substitution of short-haul flights with greener rail alternatives, the desired results do not appear to...

Public transport (PT) plays a vital role in commuting billions of travellers in cities all over the world, providing a mode that is both sustainable and accessible. Metro networks are especially apt at this considering their high-capacity and high-speed operation in urban environments. Comparing different metro networks to one another is a...

The provision of good accessibility is the main function of a well-functioning public transport (PT) system, the quality of which affects the ability of people to access basic needs such as employment, education, and healthcare. It is therefore important that PT accessibility is distributed in an equitable, or fair, manner. This thesis evaluates...

This paper investigates the kilometer charge and the potential effects of emission-based differentiation, how this policy is supported among Dutch citizens and how it affects different groups. It investigates the behavioural change caused by the new policy using Dutch stated preference discrete choice data. Two stated choice experiments are...

COVID-19 had (and still has) a huge impact on travel behaviour. Most research on the effects of COVID-19 on travel behaviour is based on daily travel behaviour. Long-distance travel is most of the time not included. Therefore, this paper studies the impact of perceived COVID-19 risk on mode-choice for long-distance travel in Europe. This paper...

Increased urbanisation has led to significant challenges for public transport operators. Inconsistent demand leads to peaks in passenger activity on the network. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a need for social distancing as well, limiting the desired capacity of vehicles. To combat this, intelligent real-time and data-driven...

Around the world, authorities try to increase the attractiveness of multimodal public transport (PT)-related trips to reduce car usage. To achieve this, a seamless combination between the different modes is necessary. The Dutch train station operator NS tries to enhance the combination of the bike and train by providing a train station-based...

Travel time is an integral part of all human activities. In transport planning, travel time is one of the most widely used and significant parameters in the design of transport systems. However, people's ability to estimate travel time and time, in general, is limited. The aim of this thesis is to broaden the knowledge on the perception of...

Due to increasing pressure on the system, the functioning of public transport networks (PTN) in metropolitan areas is crucial for future mobility. Within these networks, hierarchical levels can be distinguished where different levels have different functions. These hierarchical levels can be analyzed but there is no way to quantitatively...

Limiting climate change forces us to switch to a more sustainable mobility. Travelling by train is more sustainable. Night trains might be a solution, they over several advantages such as a higher comfort level and can travel long-distances during the night. However, there currently is no knowledge about the Willingness to Use night trains. This...

On-demand transit has become a common mode of transport with ride-sourcing companies like Uber, Lyft, Didi transforming the way we move. With the increase in popularity for such services, the supply needs to adapt according to the demand. For this, the demand needs to analyzed to examine if there are recurrent patterns in them; making it...

This research combines two relatively new additions to the field of discrete choice modelling: sequential best worst discrete choice experiments (SBWDCE) and random regret minimisation (RRM) modelling, with the hope of developing a more behaviourally realistic choice model. SBWDCEs are able to gather a larger number of stated choice observations...

The current rail infrastructure is used intensively in and around large cities, several functional network levels can be defined within the rail infrastructure. The combination of different network levels puts pressure on the available infrastructure capacity and investments are needed to increase the infrastructure capacity. The definition...

The value of travel time saving(VOTTS) is very important in cost benefit analysis(CBA) as it is used to calculate the monetary gain in case of an improvement in transport that leads to reduction in travel time. Although it is easy to directly calculate monetary gains due to a speed improvement, monetary gains due to transport service improvement...
