Examining the relationship between life transitions and travel behaviour change: New insights from the UK household longitudinal study (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Chatterjee, K., Melia, S., Knies, G., & Laurie, H. (2014, January). Examining the relationship between life transitions and travel behaviour change: New insights from the UK household longitudinal study. Paper presented at 46th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference, Newcastle University

Recent research has indicated that changes in travel behaviour are more likely at the time of major life events. However, there remains much to learn about the extent to which different life events trigger behavioural change and the conditions under...

Qualitative insights into the effect on travel behavior of joining a carshare (2013)
Journal Article
Andrews, G., Chatterjee, K., Andrews, G., Ricci, M., & Parkhurst, G. (2013). Qualitative insights into the effect on travel behavior of joining a carshare. Transportation Research Record, 2359(2359), 76-84. https://doi.org/10.3141/2359-10

Carsharing organizations (carshares) provide collectively available vehicles that can be booked for exclusive use on a pay-as-you-go basis. Previous research has shown that two groups join carshares: (a) accessors, who do not have a car when they joi...

Existing knowledge on cycling behavior, as with travel behavior in general, is based mainly on cross-sectional studies. It is questionable how much can be learned about the reasons for behavioral change from such studies. A major investment program t...

Exploring the interactions between life events, neighbourhood choice and car ownership transitions: Insights from a retrospective longitudinal survey (2012)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Lyons, G., & Chatterjee, K. (2012, January). Exploring the interactions between life events, neighbourhood choice and car ownership transitions: Insights from a retrospective longitudinal survey

A great deal has been written about the factors associated with cross-sectional variations in household car ownership. For example, observing that car ownership levels tend to increase with increasing distance from urban centres. However, much less h...

Transport policy in the UK is seeking to promote the development of low carbon transport technology and to encourage people to choose to use low carbon travel options. This paper draws on existing behavioural theories to study young people's travel b...

Creating built environments that promote walking and health: Assessing the current state of knowledge (2011)
Presentation / Conference
Chatterjee, K., Sinnett, D., Williams, K., & Cavill, N. (2011, September). Creating built environments that promote walking and health: Assessing the current state of knowledge. Paper presented at UK-Ireland Planning Research Conference, Birmingham, UK

The principle that the built environment should be supportive of walking is generally accepted and a wide range of interventions have been carried out in recent years with the aim of increasing walking. This paper presents the findings from a study c... Read More about Creating built environments that promote walking and health: Assessing the current state of knowledge.
