Article
Full-text available
According to random utility theory, there is no clear distinction between the utility inferred from observed choices (decision utility), the experienced outcome of decision makers’ (experienced utility) or their retrospective evaluation (remembered utility). While empirical experiments have shown that decision utility and remembered utility do not...

The potential of geospatial big data has been drawing attention for a few years. Despite the larger and larger market penetration of portable technologies (nomadic and wearable devices like smartphones and smartwatches), their opportunities for travel behavior analysis are still relatively unexplored. The main objective of our study is to extract t...

This paper studies the relationship between activity pattern complexity and car use using two multi-day surveys involving the same participants but collected just before and about one year after they relocated their workplace. Measurable characteristics related to two latent variables, namely activity pattern complexity, or trip chaining (e.g., num...
Article
Full-text available
Workplace relocation can have a significant impact on commuting trips as well as on the location and number of activities scheduled within the home-work tour. This often exogenous, non-voluntary event affects the entire activity-travel behavior of the employees. As response, employees can adopt several short- and long-term adaptation strategies to...

Urban analysis models have a long history. One of their characteristics is that they involve a large range of researchers from different disciplines who approach the city from different perspectives at different scales and with different objectives. However, they rarely cooperate, thus operating in distinct silos. While this may have served the com...
Article
Full-text available
On working days, homes and workplaces can be seen as anchor locations at the heart of daily mobility patterns, as well as being central to an employee’s activity pattern. In this study, we investigate how workplace relocation affects the entire daily activity-travel chain. While past research has shown that workplace decentralization is often assoc...
Article
Full-text available
The interest for travel satisfaction has rapidly grown during the past two decades. Since the development of Discrete Choice Theory, doing a trip was mostly described as a pure derived activity without utility per se but nowadays many scholars have demonstrated that individuals might be satisfied in performing the trip itself. However, little is st...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to study the utility variation related to the commuting mobility of University staff members due to their future workplace relocation. During the year 2012, a travel survey was completed by a total of 397 staff members, representing 36.4% of the university employees, who filled in a questionnaire which revealed complex deci...
