Abstract:In this thesis the question Which factors determine the intention to use certain indicated/non-indicated modes of transport of citizens within the social domain within the municipality of Twenterand? has been answered. This was done with the help of literature study and a survey. The explantory model was based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour. This theory beliefs that behaviour is predicted by the intention to perform the behaviour. Five beliefs were expected to influence the intention to use a mode of transport: reaching the destination of activity, ease of use, subjective norm, opportunity and required resources. With the help of regression analysis factors influencing the intention to use indicated, own, public and volunteer transport were identified. It was found that reaching the destination of activity was the most important factor for all modes of transport. This means that the municipality of Twenterand has to research whether belief is correct regarding the mode of transport. When this is the case, changes regarding the ability to reach a destination have to be made to the mode of trasport. When the belief is incorrect, the municipality should put an effort in changing the belief among the citizens.
