Papers in this Special Issue are invited by experts from any sustainability-related discipline to address the wider impacts of ACT based on empirical evidence and surveys of user preferences and acceptance levels. Survey data could be attitudinal data, revealed preference data or stated preference data based on future scenarios. All papers should also make explicit links with socioeconomic, business or policy implications of sustainable deployment of ACT. Large-scale surveys, surveys using innovative data collection or presentation methods, and cross-country comparisons are particularly welcome. The dissemination of research results, tests, developments, and applications will be crucial to steer the governance concerning the spread of ACT, with the aim to effectively and truly contribute to a more sustainable transport.
Indicative topics of this Special Issue may include:
- Identifying the key behavioural, economic, social, demographic or cultural factors determining the attitude of transport users towards ACT;
- Analysing the behaviour of ACT users by comparing their choices through revealed or stated preference experiments;
- Reviewing and evaluating the value of travel time for ACT;
- Evaluating socio-economic challenges of ACT, e.g., equity, privacy, security;
- Adjusting survey methods and suggest innovative data collection methodologies for ACT.
Submission Deadline: 31st July 2020
