Skip to 0 minutes and 4 seconds In this course, we’re going to talk about the determinants of transport behaviour and how to influence transport behaviour. My name is Jan Scheurer. I’m honorary associate professor at RMIT University, partly based at RMIT in Barcelona. And my co-designer of this course is Professor Jago Dodson. The determinants of transport behaviour are manifolds. It’s about structural factors, how our cities and settlement area are structured and what does it mean for getting around. And also, what sort of modes of transport are actually available for people and affordable to people. Then there’s the practical factors. Those are considerations like safety and comfort of travelling around. Then there are the psychological factors.

And also, things like are we perhaps a bit enamoured with certain modes of transport over others? And where does that come from? And then there’s the important question of what do the decisions of policymakers actually have to do with our transport choices? What levers of influences do we actually have as policy makers, or advisors to policymakers, to change people’s behaviour, and perhaps change our own behaviour as well?
