What happens to travel behaviour when the right to park is removed? This controversial question, fundamental to travel demand management and land-use planning, has only been partially addressed by the literature so far. The impacts on travel to the...

Flood resilience on the railways – solutions, appraisal and decision-making (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Parkin, J., Everard, M., Quinn, N., & Parkhurst, G. (2016, January). Flood resilience on the railways – solutions, appraisal and decision-making. Paper presented at 48th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference

The welfare costs of weather related disruption on the transport network have been estimated to be between £100m and £520m per day of disruption in England. This paper presents a case study of a mainline railway cutting and tunnel, which is situated... Read More about Flood resilience on the railways – solutions, appraisal and decision-making.

The potential impact of autonomous vehicles on transport systems and society: A review and future prospects (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Parkhurst, G., & Ricci, M. (2016, January). The potential impact of autonomous vehicles on transport systems and society: A review and future prospects. Paper presented at 48th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference

Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are generating high-profile policy interest due to the potential for ‘disruptive’ influence on transport systems and wider society. The paper places AV technology in a historical context, through an annotated timeline of dev...

When policy recommendations get lost in translation: An examination of the express coach ‘niche’ as a missed sustainable mobility opportunity in the dominant inter-city travel regime (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., & Parkhurst, G. (2015, January). When policy recommendations get lost in translation: An examination of the express coach ‘niche’ as a missed sustainable mobility opportunity in the dominant inter-city travel regime. Paper presented at 47th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference

Public express coach services potentially offer a solution to many inter-urban transport problems, providing additional capacity at a comparatively low financial and environmental cost, and deliverable in a much quicker timescale than the alternative...

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

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...

Should Wikipedia be embraced by the transport profession as an influential source of information on transport issues? (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Lyons, G., & Miller, P. (2013, January). Should Wikipedia be embraced by the transport profession as an influential source of information on transport issues?. Paper presented at 45th Universities' Transport Studies Group Conference

Like it or not, Wikipedia has become an influential source of information for the public and for professionals on many subjects, including transport. Enter either ‘high speed 2’ or ‘peak car’ (a debate of increasing academic interest) into Google and...

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...

Understanding the dynamics of car ownership: Some unanswered questions (2009)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, B., Lyons, G., & Chatterjee, K. (2009, January). Understanding the dynamics of car ownership: Some unanswered questions

This discussion paper arises from the first year of a PhD study into household car ownership decisions. It begins by summarising explanations for the past (aggregate) increases in car ownership, reviewing research from the fields of economics, urban...
