Ride-hailing and other on-demand mobility services are often proposed as a solution for improving the accessibility of public transport by offering first/last mile connectivity. We study the potential of using on-demand services to improve train station access by means of a three-step sequential stated preference survey. We compare the preferences for on-demand services with the bicycle, car and public transport for accessing two alternative train stations at different access distances. We… 



Potential of on-demand services for urban travel

On-demand mobility services are promising to revolutionise urban travel, but preliminary studies are showing they may actually increase total vehicle miles travelled, worsening road congestion in

Analyzing commuter train user behavior: a decision framework for access mode and station choice

The purpose of the current research effort is to develop a framework for a better understanding of commuter train users’ access mode and station choice behavior. Typically, access mode and station

Home-end and activity-end preferences for access to and egress from train stations in the Copenhagen region

ABSTRACT Increasing public transport use with the aim of improving the sustainability of cities should focus not only on enhancing level and quality of the service offered, but also on understanding

Shared mobility for the first and last mile: Exploring the willingness to share

Over the past decade, the development of ICT and online platforms has provided the infrastructure for new ways of sharing on a scale never seen before which are causing a shift from ownership to

A Framework to Integrate Mode Choice in the Design of Mobility-on-Demand Systems

The Relation between Train Access Mode Attributes and Travelers’ Transport Mode-Choice Decisions in the Context of Medium- and Long-Distance Trips in the Netherlands

This paper presents the findings of a study that investigated travelers’ transport mode-choice behavior in the context of medium- and long-distance trips, with special attention given to attributes

Identifying user classes for shared and automated mobility services

A stated choice experiment on mode choice among a sample of the Dutch urban population has been conducted, and shows that higher educated and more time-sensitive respondents are more inclined than others to favour the (automated) car-sharing options.

Modelling route choice behaviour in multi-modal transport networks

A more advanced so-called Multi-Nested GEV model according to the Principles of Differentiation has been estimated which significantly improves the explanatory power and stresses the importance of the home-end of the multi-modal trip.

What are the determinants of the willingness to share rides in pooled on-demand services?

A stated preference study targeting Dutch urban individuals finds that less than one third of respondents have strong preferences against sharing their rides, and scenario analysis demonstrates that the share of individuals who are willing to share rides depends primarily on the time–cost trade-offs, rather than on the disutility stemming from pooling rides per se.
