Abstract

Effectiveness of transport policy measures in motivating car users to switch travel mode is a promising area of research. Stated preference (SP) surveys, also called self-stated preferences for research or services, have been widely applied in the areas of marketing and travel demand modelling, separately or jointly with Revealed Preference (RP) surveys. Therefore, the current study was designed to understand the transport mode of Libyan citizens according to the proposed transport policies for long trip (TPLT) and short trip as well (TPST). The data for this study were obtained used SP method. Respondents were asked if they were making a long or short trip, what are the reasons to use another form of transportation than your automobile. Questionnaires were distributed, entered and data was analysed logistic regression modelling. A summary of the estimations from the model are presented. The coefficients for some explanatory variables of the short trip are clearly significant. The results attained have shown that some measures are significantly affecting the travel mode switching. The current study is the first of its kind to explore the Libyan scenario in the matter investigated.
