This study focusses on cycling for transport in a general context (as opposed to bikeshare), also allowing for multi-modal trips. The influence of trip- and personal-characteristics on whether cycling replaces car-driving has also been considered.
This research argues that combined use of the bicycle and public transport should be understood in a broad perspective, especially where bicycles link to higher speed and higher capacity public transport, such as the train.
This study aims to describe travel behavior of residents in Transit-oriented developments (TODs) and its impacts on levels of physical activity through utilitarian trips (i.e., routine trips to school, work and grocery shopping).
The purpose of this study was to document the conditions and characteristics of commuters who bicycle to rail stations in New Jersey.
This chapter is part of a larger natual experimental study of the Cambridgeshre Guided Busway and looks at a variety of methods to improve our understanding of active commuting. It focuses on understanding the baseline patterns of commuting behaviour, the relationships between active commuting and aspects of health and well-being, and the ways in which the social and physical environment shape active commuting.
The e-cyclist project was aimed at avid car users who wanted to start cycling. Participants were given a bike and helmet to borrow for a period of time. Some 100 people participated in the 2014 project and 300 people in the 2015 project. The participants received health coaching via a blog and a health expert, and also contributed on a joint internet forum. The computer display on the bikes recorded the kilometres and the cyclist who had cycled the most was then voted as Cyclist of the Month and Cyclist of the Year.
This paper describes a survey-based evaluation of the San Francisco Bay Area’s 2014 Bike-to-Work Day, which drew over 66,000 participants.
Using a survey-based research design, this research study aims to understand which individual, environmental and sociocultural factors influence a person’s decision to commute to work by bicycle in Brisbane, with a particular focus on how these factors differ by gender.
