Cycling safety is a major traffic safety issue both in the Netherlands and abroad. The number of cyclist fatalities in the EU has been decreasing in recent years, however at a slower rate than those of car occupants or pedestrians. One of the factors negatively influencing cycling safety may be related to limitations on availability of auditory...

Araghi, Y. (author)
While transport is essential for the functioning of the economy of each country, it is also contributing to CO2 emissions and other externalities, like safety risks and noise exposure. According to the Internal Energy Agency, around 23% of global CO2 emissions is related to the transport sector in 2015, making it second largest emitter after the...

This thesis unravels the long-term relationships between transport networks, land use and travel behaviour at a regional scale. It investigates these relationships by applying various methods to an extensive long-term geo-referenced database, in the case of the Greater Randstad Area in the Netherlands. Its findings shed light on the roles of...

Mingardo, G. (author)
Since the sixties the car has been the dominant mode of transport for passengers in most (if not all) OECD countries. However, despite being built to move people, a car spends on average more than 95% of its existence parked (Shoup, 2005; Bates, 2014). This should be enough to seriously consider parking and parking policy as topics of both...

Urban areas suffer from the negative externalities of road transport like congested road networks, air pollution and road traffic accidents. A measure to reduce these negative externalities is road pricing, meaning policies that impose direct charges on road use (Jones and Hervik, 1992). Since the introduction of road pricing in the literature ...

Ardiç, O. (author)
Although road pricing policies are generally seen as an effective measure to deal with transport related problems (e.g. congestion), the number of implemented road pricing schemes is relatively limited. The thesis aims to gain insights into complex interplay between policy actors, media and public in road pricing policy processes to understand...

Van Dorsser, J.C.M. (author)
This thesis addresses how a new method for the evaluation of policies with a very long term impact on the Dutch Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) system can be developed. It proposes an outline for a very long term transport model, prepares a number of very long term scenarios, and indicates that a different perspective on economic growth and...

It is expected that information and communication technology (ICT) can have great impacts on traveler’s accessibility. However, understanding of the effects of ICT on accessibility is still limited. Consequently, this thesis aims to increase the understanding of such effects. The thesis develops a generic formal integrative behavioral model to...

Electric vehicles are one innovation that could help reduce CO2 emissions from the transportation sector and mitigate the harmful effects of climate change. However, substantial roadblocks to their adoption exist including high purchase cost, lack of charging infrastructure, and long charging time. This thesis explores factors from consumers,...

Task complexity and time pressure may have impacts on travellers’ choices in the context of highly synchronised mobility networks. However, it is unclear at the moment how these two aspects should be properly modelled simultaneously and what these impacts of the two aspects really are on travellers’ choices. Consequently, this research aims to...

In most western countries Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) is used to inform decision makers about positive and negative effects for society of transport policy options. However, the way CBA is perceived by different key individuals that use, carry out or study CBAs has received scant attention in the literature. This thesis aims to fill four...

Peak oil, strong international climate policy, and many other unconventional changes which loom on the horizon may strongly change current vacation travel patterns. What changes in vacation travel behaviour can we expect and how can policy-makers prepare for them? This thesis takes the first steps to answer these questions. It develops and...

Relevance The analyses and forecasts of the annual number of road casualties are relevant for outlining road safety policies. With analyses we try to understand the road safety developments. This involves the relation between the observed annual numbers of casualties and external factors. These are developments in distance travelled, safety...

Cantarelli, C.C. (author)
In the Netherlands, the costs of railroad infrastructure construction work out 11 per cent higher than forecast; the percentage for roads is 19 and 22 for bridges and tunnels. While this puts the Netherlands in a favourable light compared to other countries, the actual cost overruns are probably far higher, believes Chantal Cantarelli, who...

Ever since the 1950s, the Dutch national government has struggled intensely with the trade-off between the economic significance and environmental impact of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the largest airport of the Netherlands. By 2005, the ambition to combine the growth of ‘Mainport’ Schiphol with comprehensive environmental measures has resulted...

Cycling is cheaper, healthier and in urban environments often faster than other transport modes. Nevertheless, even at short distances, many individuals do not cycle. This thesis aims to explain why commuters vary in their decision to bicycle. Results indicate that the individual (day-to-day) choice to commute by bicycle is affected by personal...

How can it be that one person is extremely annoyed by the sounds of aircrafts, while his neighbour claims not to be bothered at all? The present thesis attempts to explain this observation by applying a range of quantitative methods to field data gathered among residents living near large airports. Whereas previous explanatory models of aircraft...

The treatment of uncertainty in the long-term planning of infrastructures in general and of mainports such as airports and seaports is a key challenge for decisionmakers. Moreover, these uncertainties have increased over the last decades due to changes in owner structure, changes in rules and regulations, and the ever increasing connectedness of...

Bohte, W. (author)
Most Western national governments aim to influence individual travel patterns – at least to some degree – through spatial planning in residential areas. Nevertheless, the extent to which the characteristics of the built environment influence travel behaviour remains the subject of some debate among travel behaviour researchers. This thesis...

This thesis examines the implementation and outcomes of market friendly reforms in urban public transport in the city of Yaonde in Cameroon in the 1990s under auspices and pressure from Bretton Woods Institutions in favour of the new development doctrine that preached minimal state. It seeks to expalin why certain policy measures were...
