A Stated Preference (SP) Study on Better Public Transport Service

Mahmut Esad Ergin [7]

Abstract: The population density in cities brings the necessity of making large-scale urban infrastructure investments for the sake of the residents. As a result of unplanned or uncontrolled growth of the city, heavy traffic jams are experienced in cities. In this study, it has been investigated how much public transport users and private vehicle users can pay for a better public transport system. Thus, it can be estimated the possible economic effect of the improvements. Within the context of the study, the scoring of the public transport system by private vehicle users and public transport users and the additional payment they can pay for better conditions were asked. The determining criteria are waiting time at the bus stop, safety, crowdedness, stress free travel, and long travel time. According to the results of the analysis, while private vehicle users generally evaluated the public transportation system as worse, they stated that they could pay more for better conditions than the public transportation system users.
