Safety Perception of Users and Willingness to Pay for Safer Public Transport

Mahmut Esad Ergin [7]

Abstract: One of a city's most basic necessities is a safe public transit infrastructure. The expenses of traffic congestion can be reduced with an accessible and economical public transit system. The most effective strategy to manage present and future transportation demand is to increase the use of public transit and to move private car users to a pleasant, quick, punctual, and safe public transportation system. It is aimed with this study is that the user impression of public transportation was tried to be quantified in terms of property and life safety, and it was explored how much users would be willing to pay for a safer public transportation system by using binomial logit model approach. As a result of the study, in general, people believe that the system is insufficient in terms of safety. As the consumers' trip times? rise, the likelihood of switching to Future mode increases. In this scenario, it is reasonable to argue that lowering trip time will improve consumers' perceptions of the safety of public transportation. As the consumers' ages rise, so does their need for more pleasant and safe trips.
