Group Behavioral Process Identification in the Interaction Between Location Choice and Travel Behavior

This project fills a critical gap in knowledge of land use, transportation and environment relationships. It exploits recently developed data collection methods to include questions about sense of place, personality, location choices, lifecycle stages, lifestyle choices, and travel behavior in a set of nested surveys for households. In the project we will test hypotheses about the relationships among attitudes, location choices, and travel behavior merging theoretical constructs from environmental psychology, geography, urban economics, and travel behavior. A key research aspect is the analytical identification and description of human interaction within households and the unraveling of household members' roles in decision making. The project will provide guidance for large scale data collection projects by Metropolitan Planning Organizations in the US. It also will provide a stronger theoretical framework for model specification for Integrated Land Use - Transportation - Environment (LTE) models, and will provide insights about the potential of land use policies for travel behavior changes.
