This study examined the correlation between mode choice for commuting
and newly introduced multi-regional integrated ticketing between
Stockholm and Uppsala, Sweden. The results suggested that integrated
ticketing has an overall positive effect on promoting greater public
transport use; in particular, male car commuters compared to females are
more likely to switch to PT for commuting.

2021: The long-term acceptance pattern of automated public transport service: Evidence from Stockholm.

Transportation Research part A, 155: 450-463, doi: 10.1016/j.tra.2021.10.021.

Using the three-wave panel data, this study focuses on the real-world
riding experiences of the automated bus operated in the mixed traffic
environment on public roads in Stockholm, Sweden. The results show that
people evaluated speed and travel time of the automated bus
unsatisfactory, but the evaluations increased steadily; while they
perceived safety, comfort and convenience as satisfactory, but the
assessments declined moderately over time.

2021: Towards a better understanding of the health impacts of one’s movement in space
and time

To better understand the interactions between physical built
environment conditions and one’s well-being, we created a passive data
collector for travellers and made the first step towards an explanatory
model based on psychophysiological relations.

2021: Residential Locations and Health Effects on Multitasking Behaviours and Day Experiences

Sustainability, 13, no. 20: 11347.

This study aims to contribute to the existing research by investigating the effects of activity durations, trip parameters, residential location
situation, and health on multitasking, and in turn the effects of multitasking on daily satisfaction and cognitive well-being, for three different activities, i.e., grocery shopping, travelling, and work.
Using a three-week time-use diary from Indonesia, this study found that the influences of built environment and physical health on multitasking
activities are relatively stronger than activity duration and trip parameters. The results also demonstrated positive correlations between polycentric city designs and people’s day experiences.

2021: The climate change mitigation impacts of active travel: Evidence from a longitudinal panel study in seven European cities

Christian Brand, Thomas Götschi, Evi Dons, Regine Gerike, Esther Anaya-Boig, Ione Avila-Palencia, Audrey de Nazelle, Mirea Gascon, Mailin Gaupp-Berghausen, Francesco Iacorossi, Sonja Kahlmeier, Luc Int Panis, Francesca Racioppi, David Rojas-Rueda, Arnout Standaert, Erik Stigell, Simona Sulikova, Sandra Wegener, Mark J. Nieuwenhuijsen

in Journal “Global Environmental Change“

Active travel (walking or cycling for transport) is considered the most sustainable and low carbon form of getting from A to B. For determining the net effects of changes in active travel on changes in mobility-related CO2 emissions, longitudinal data on daily travel behavior, journey purpose, as well as personal and geospatial characteristics were collected in seven European cities. Statistical modelling of longitudinal panel data was performed to assess how changes in active travel influenced changes in mobility-related lifecycle CO2 emissions; with the result that those changes have significant lifecycle carbon emissions benefits, even in European urban contexts with already high walking and cycling shares.


2021: Assessing the Policy Environment for Active Mobility in Cities—Development and Feasibility of the PASTA Cycling and Walking Policy Environment Score

in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health

The importance of setting a policy focus on promoting cycling and walking as sustainable and healthy modes of transport is increasingly recognized. In this study a science-driven scoring system including six dimensions (cycling/walking culture, social acceptance, perception of traffic safety, advocacy, politics and urban planning) was developed to assess the policy environment for cycling and walking for seven European cities.

2021: When and why do people choose automated buses over conventional buses? Results of a context-dependent stated choice experiment

Jia Guoa; Yusak Susilo; Constantinos Antonioua; Anna Pernestålc

Erschienen in der Zeitschrift "Sustainable Cities and Society"

This study examines travellers’ preferences for automated buses compared to conventional buses, using a context-dependent stated choice experiment.
It examines the effects of context variables—such as trip purpose, distance to destination, time of day, weather conditions, and travel companion.

The results indicate that the influence of choice attributes does not vary much when choosing to use automated buses or choosing to use conventional buses. That is sad, the context variables matters on travel mode choice.

2021: The trade-off between virtual and physical activities during the first COVID-19 lockdown

Elisa Bin; Claudia Andruetto; Yusak Susilo & Anna Pernestål

Based on empirical data collected from Italy, Sweden, India and few more others, we found that the external restrictions and personal characteristics are the driving factors of the changes in ones' daily trips. However, the estimation results do not show a strong correlation between the countries' restriction policy and the respondents' likelihood to adopt the new and online-based behaviours for any of the activities after the restriction period.
