On 18th December 2023, TRAIL PhD researcher Nejc Gerzinic will defend his PhD thesis ‘The Impact of Public Transport Disruptors on Travel Behaviour’ at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are cordially invited to join.
Moreover, on the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on the impacts of disruptive changes on travel behaviour. Such changes include the entrance of new disruptive technologies and services ranging from ride-pooling and shared fleets to the potential introduction of self-driving vehicles. Other changes pertain to disruptive and possibly lasting societal changes such as those prompted by the pandemic, the most noteworthy of which is the greater propensity to working from home. In this seminar the speakers will specifically address the impacts of shared demand responsive transport and teleworking on travel behaviour.
