In this work, route-choice simulations and laboratory experiments were conducted in order to evaluate the effect of feedback mechanism on decision-making under uncertainty, with and without provided information about travel times. We discuss the prediction of travellers' response to uncertainty in two route-choice situations. In the first situation(More)

Following studies of human decision-making under risk and uncertainty, extensive evidence of loss aversion and asymmetric risk-taking behaviour around a reference point was found. This work presents an investigation of the effect of the reference point value on the stochastic network equilibrium. Prospect Theory, based on empirical experiments, proposes an(More)
It can be argued that the main thinking in transport planning and policy making stem from neoclassical economics in which individuals are largely assumed to make rational, consistent, and efficient choices, and apply cognitive processes of decision making that maximise their economic utility. Research in behavioural sciences indicates that individuals'(More)
The provision of information on transport-related carbon dioxide (CO 2) to the traveller can be seen as an instrument to increase the likelihood of more sustainable choices being made by individuals. However, the choice between travel alternatives according to their environmental effects can be considered as a social dilemma; as transport-related CO 2(More)

This paper is produced and circulated privately and its inclusion in the conference does not constitute publication. Abstract The transport sector represents roughly 18% of the CO 2 emissions in the EU and is the only sector that has continued to increase emissions. As most people live and work in cities in the EU, it is important to identify the leaders(More)
