Sustainable travel behaviours of TOD residents: An examination of TOD residents’ travel mode choices and consistency in Hangzhou
Transit-oriented development (TOD) is an urban design model designed to attract more sustainable travellers. However, not every TOD project conducts a highly sustainable travel sharing rate, and the proportion of daily car users in TODs is still growing steadily each year, especially in the cases of Chinese cities. Meanwhile, many Chinese cities are putting enormous investments into metro infrastructure development, but they are uncertain of whether these resources could be adequately used. Therefore, using the data collected from 1,298 TOD residents in Hangzhou, this paper aims to examine the wider impacts of TODs on the residents’ travel behaviours to broaden the current studies of travel behaviours by using the perspective of TOD residents and examining travel behaviour consistency. More specifically, this research employs three binary logistic models to identify the key variables which determine TOD residents’ travel choices and mode consistency. The results demonstrate that variables like monthly income, residential tenure, workplace metro accessibility and travel attitudes significantly impact travel mode choice, while variables like monthly incomes, the number of children in a household and increased car number influence the sustainable traveller’s behavioural consistency. A limited number of factors can influence car users to shift to sustainable travel behaviours. The research results would eventually contribute to planners’ design theories on TOD and implementation of new policies to reach a higher sustainable transport sharing rate within TOD properties as well as an adequate use of the metro infrastructure investments.
