Increasing Active Transport in Melbourne
The Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DoTPLI) wishes, for various reasons, to increase the amount of walking and cycling in Melbourne. So far, this desire has not yet been quantified in terms of specific market objectives. Nevertheless, you have been called upon, as a consultant, to advise the Department on steps they could take to achieve their objective. The Department has a limited budget and hence needs to obtain maximum return from any investment they make. The DoTPLI controls both public transport operations and the construction and management of the road system in Melbourne. Describe 3 key initiatives that DoTPLI should undertake based on the behavioural choice modelling concepts presented in this course.
For your trip from home to the University today, list the factors that were relevant to your own choice making behaviour for each component within the conceptual model of the choice process.
