How commuting affects subjective wellbeing (2019)
Journal Article
Clark, B., Chatterjee, K., Martin, A., & Davis, A. (2020). How commuting affects subjective wellbeing. Transportation, 47, 2777–2805. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11116-019-09983-9

Commuting between home and work is routinely performed by workers and any wellbeing impacts of commuting will consequently affect a large proportion of the population. This paper presents findings from analyses of the impact of commuting (time and mo... Read More about How commuting affects subjective wellbeing.

Commute mode choice dynamics: Accounting for day-to-day variability in longer term change (2016)
Journal Article
Chatterjee, K., Clark, B., & Bartle, C. (2016). Commute mode choice dynamics: Accounting for day-to-day variability in longer term change. European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research, 16(4), 713-734

It is of interest to transport policy makers to know whether interventions promoting sustainable transport modes can produce long-term changes in commute mode choices. Recent evidence has shown that a significant minority of commuters are variable in... Read More about Commute mode choice dynamics: Accounting for day-to-day variability in longer term change.

Understanding the process that gives rise to household car ownership level changes (2016)
Journal Article
Clark, B., Lyons, G., & Chatterjee, K. (2016). Understanding the process that gives rise to household car ownership level changes. Journal of Transport Geography, 55, 110-120. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtrangeo.2016.07.009

© 2016 The Authors Quantitative studies have revealed that changes to the number of cars owned by households are more likely to occur at the time of life events. However, causal explanations of such relationships are either absent or lacking evidence... Read More about Understanding the process that gives rise to household car ownership level changes.

Changes to commute mode: The role of life events, spatial context and environmental attitude (2016)
Journal Article
Clark, B., Chatterjee, K., & Melia, S. (2016). Changes to commute mode: The role of life events, spatial context and environmental attitude. Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, 89, 89-105. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tra.2016.05.005

© 2016 The Authors. It has been suggested that commuting behaviours become habitual and that changes to commute mode are more likely at the time of major life events. However, evidence to support this has so far been limited to analyses of small-scal... Read More about Changes to commute mode: The role of life events, spatial context and environmental attitude.

The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.5 - Roadspace re-allocation (2016)
Journal Article
Clark, B. (2016). The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.5 - Roadspace re-allocation. World Transport Policy and Practice, 22(1/2), 47-55

Key messages: • Schemes in which general traffic lanes are re-allocated to alternative uses can be expected to reduce traffic volumes, improve journey times for the modes given additional priority (e.g. bicycles or buses), increase the use of non-...

The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.16 - Traffic management and control (2016)
Journal Article
Clark, B. (2016). The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.16 - Traffic management and control. World Transport Policy and Practice, 22(1/2), 152-161

Key messages: • Urban Traffic Control systems (UTC) can be expected to improve network efficiency by reducing delays to vehicles. This can have additional benefits in reducing fuel use and emissions (although evidence here is limited). • Econom...

The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.13 - New public transport systems and networks (2016)
Journal Article
Clark, B. (2016). The EVIDENCE project: Measure no.13 - New public transport systems and networks. World Transport Policy and Practice, 22(1/2), 121-132

Key messages: • Light rail (LRT) and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems can increase passenger carrying capacity, increase use of public transport, and deliver land use strategies; e.g. regenerating former industrial areas, intensification around tra...

Changes in level of household car ownership: The role of life events and spatial context (2015)
Journal Article

Recent longitudinal studies of household car ownership have examined factors associated with increases and decreases in car ownership level. The contribution of this panel data analysis is to identify the predictors of different types of car ownershi...

Life events and travel behavior exploring the interrelationship using UK Household Longitudinal Study data (2014)
Journal Article
Clark, B., Chatterjee, K., Melia, S., Knies, G., & Laurie, H. (2014). Life events and travel behavior exploring the interrelationship using UK Household Longitudinal Study data. Transportation Research Record, 2413, 54-64. https://doi.org/10.3141/2413-06

Recent research has indicated that changes in travel behavior are more likely at the time of major life events. However, much remains to be learned about the extent to which different life events trigger behavioral change and the conditions under whi...
