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...

Understanding how household car ownership changes over time (2012)
Thesis
Clark, B. Understanding how household car ownership changes over time. (Thesis). University of the West of England

The PhD study presented in this thesis sets out to address the question: How and why does household car ownership change over time? This question is justified on the basis that the study of car ownership has traditionally been dominated by cross-sect... Read More about Understanding how household car ownership changes over time.

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...
