The objective of this research is to guide public transportation planners and marketers; multimodal transportation planners, modelers, researchers; and policy makers in understanding how travelers' choices are influenced by their larger social context. The research will employ tenets of learning theory, including social learning theory, to examine how individuals choose where to live and work and how they travel; the implications of this examination on the planning, design, and marketing of transportation systems will be reported.
