Determinants of Usage and Satisfaction
with Demand Responsive Transport
Systems in Rural Areas
This paper identified the decisive factors of DRT systems’ usage in rural areas by examining user characteristics, usage cases, and the determinants of satisfaction with such services. The findings suggest that DRT systems are used for both compulsory and nonmandatory trips and that the majority of users are female. However, the results from different user groups and services suggest that there are not unanimous determinants of the probability of traveling by DRT. With regard to overall satisfaction, it is found that it is related to satisfaction with both trip-level attributes and system design characteristics. The paper can be found in here.

Do you ever wonder the impacts of your intense physical activities, e.g. running and cycling, to the rest of your day's activities' participation?

This study explores the role of convenience travel alternative and the intensity of physically active activities to one's subjective health assessment. The paper can be found here.
