Scholarcy highlights

  • We study the effects of public transport use incentives on changes in travel satisfaction of participants that undergo behavior change
  • We use the results of an experiment conducted recently at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and requiring a temporary use of public transport for commuting to work by habitual car drivers
  • We observe an increase in the average level of satisfaction with the commute to work of participants who switch to public transport after the temporary intervention
  • This increase is sustained to some extent several months after the intervention
  • The statistics that we calculate all consider the sample size
