    ABSTRACT: With increasing concerns on environmental and energy issues in many large Chinese cities, local authorities are introducing public bicycle schemes for promotion of using green transportation modes. This paper proposes a novel model for investigating the effects of the public bicycle schemes in a congested multi-modal road network with auto, bus and public bicycle travel. The decision-making process of travelers on travel mode and route choices is assumed to follow a hierarchical choice structure. The effects of pollution emissions by motorized vehicles (i.e. auto and bus), crowding discomfort in buses, and riding fatigue by bicycles are considered in the proposed model. The multi-modal travel choice equilibrium problem is formulated as an equivalent variational inequality problem. The existence and uniqueness of the solution of the proposed model are examined. A heuristic solution algorithm which combines a diagonalization approach and the method of successive averages is adapted to solve the proposed model. A numerical example is given to illustrate the application of the proposed model and solution algorithm. Insightful findings are reported on the effects of the public bicycle schemes and emission tax policy on the multi-modal transportation system. The optimal public bicycle rental price and emission tax for maximization of social welfare can also be determined by the proposed model.

    ABSTRACT: Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are hypothesized to replace or change the use of the transport system by facilitating new or different activities. This article offers a review of more than 40 years of research regarding the relationship between ICTs and urban mobility. We discuss the expectations for the changes in travel demand, travel patterns, and the urban form as a result of the development and introduction of ICTs. Much of the interest in the relationships between ICTs and mobility is premised on the expectation of substitution effects, but empirical findings often suggest more complex effects than direct substitution. Although research on single types of travel activity may sometimes indicate simple substitution effects, examination of the broader impacts may also reveal travel generation effects as well. As such, ICTs do not simply substitute mobility patterns but change them. A growing body of research focuses on changing mobility patterns (in terms of time and space), changes in the experience of travel and changes in the perceptions of travel costs due to the interaction between old and new technologies for overcoming distance. ICTs are gradually becoming embedded within the transport system, enabling flexibility, multitasking, and an increase in human activities.

    ABSTRACT: A methodology originally developed to predict vehicle emissions was applied to prediction of fuel consumption for 56 over-the-road heavy heavy-duty trucks recruited in southern California. The method employed measurements exercised over chassis dynamometer cycles and the properties of those cycles. Nine driving cycle properties and their combinations were used to predict fuel consumption over an “unseen” cycle, based on measurements from up to four different baseline driving cycles. The results showed that the use of average velocity and average positive acceleration was suitable for the translation of fuel consumption between cycles, producing the lowest prediction error among the cases considered.

    ABSTRACT: Interest in cycling as a sustainable form of transport has helped foreground questions of gender and mobility. This paper reports on a qualitative study into Australian women's experiences of cycling through the life course. It focuses on the circumstances in which women start and stop cycling and the spatial contexts in which this occurs. The study found that, after childhood, almost half of the respondents had returned to cycling several times through the life course. Changes in women's cycling patterns related to changes in housing, employment, health and family status. The findings suggest productive new way of researching everyday mobility.

    ABSTRACT: The Asia–Europe liner service often calls at a number of Europe-continent ports and one UK port. An alternative is to skip the UK port by using feeder services to reach the UK market. This article aims to quantitatively analyze the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of these two alternatives, and to identify which is preferable in different scenarios. We adopt a detailed service activity-based method to calculate the CO2 emissions for two alternatives in a range of scenarios. The study is expected to provide shipping companies with useful insight into policy merits and service route design from a CO2 emissions perspective.

    ABSTRACT: Planners and researchers increasingly are concerned with how residential environments relate to auto ownership and travel. We quantified accessibility and walkability, to examine relationships of trips and modes to auto ownership and residential location. We applied the results in travel demand modeling for various scenarios, including a recent forecast linking land use and demographic changes, travel behavior, emissions and air quality. We found that where the built environment rates high on such measures as density, connectivity, pedestrian and transit facilities, and other features of highly walkable and accessible areas, people own fewer vehicles but make more trips. Although such environments also are associated with greater likelihood of walking and attendant decreases in motorized modes, driving remains overwhelmingly dominant.
