Evaluation of the change in parking policy on Frenchay campus (2016)
Report
Melia, S., & Clark, B. (2016). Evaluation of the change in parking policy on Frenchay campus

The change was applied t... Read More about Evaluation of the change in parking policy on Frenchay campus.

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)
