Abstract:For years, researchers have been trying to understand the dynamics of travel behaviour. Having knowledge on an individuals’ travel behaviour and its decision making process, provides insight in characteristics policy makers can influence in order to achieve a behavioural change. Analysis of travel behaviour is typically undertaken based on single-day data for each individual or household in a sample. Using single-day data does not capture the variability in the behaviour of an individual, since the measurement is performed only at one point in time. Therefore, research to intrapersonal variability in travel behaviour in the literature is scarce. Most empirical research focussed on the intrapersonal variability of trip characteristics. Characteristics influencing intrapersonal variability in mode use have not been thoroughly researched yet. Two theories explain the dynamics in modal choice; the economists view using the utility theory and the theory of planned behaviour stating that habit plays a role in the mode choice process. The availability of a multi-day dataset collected in the Dutch Mobile Mobility Panel project makes it possible to analyse intrapersonal variability in mode choice behaviour. Therefore, the aim of this research is to: Determine what characteristics influence intrapersonal variability in mode choice behaviour by exploring the available methods and apply this on the data collected in the Dutch Mobile Mobility Panel project.
