Estimating the income and socio-economic determinants of the demand for transport using household micro-data
Nolan, Anne Marie
THESIS 7348 The purpose of this thesis is to examine the income and socio-economic determinants of transport demand, using Dublin as a case study. Chapter 1 sets the context by discussing the problem of excessive car use in urban areas and the increasing movement away from earlier policies that were primarily concerned with expanding road capacity towards a more integrated solution encompassing investment in public transport and measures such as improved cycle and bus lanes, parking restrictions and road pricing. In this context, the need for a better understanding of the income and socio-economic factors influencing the demand for urban transport is highlighted.
