Transport Infrastructure Investment: How to Achieve Travel Behaviour Change

Postponed due to rail strike -look out for announcement of new date

Delivered in Partnership with Luton Council, this workshop will use the case study of the new Guided Busway in Luton to consider how capital investment in transport infrastructure projects can be used to achieve changes in travel behaviour. It will look at what parallel behaviour change interventions have and could be introduced and also discuss the opportunities that exist to lever revenue funding into what otherwise could be a capital investment dominated environment. The workshop will include a visit to the Busway and interactive discussion sessions designed to give delegates a chance to share their experiences.

Date/time: Wednesday 10 June, 10 am to 4 pm (including lunch)

The session will consider:

  • How to achieve passenger targets?
  • How to promote the service after the initial opening?
  • How to monitor use of new infrastructure, traffic monitoring and promotional campaigns together?

Outline content:

  • Part 1: Introduction to the Guided Busway Scheme including the existing behaviour change interventions that have been deployed. (10-11.30am)
  • Part 2: Short site visit of the Guided Busway to look in particular at use of real time information and integration with cycle and walking facilities (11.30-1.30pm including lunch)
  • Part 3: Facilitated group work to discuss a number of areas related to challenges associated with securing changes in travel behaviour associated with infrastructure investment and the opportunities to secure revenue funding outside of the LSTF process. (1.30pm-3.30pm)

The group work in Part 3 will consider:

  • How to achieve passenger targets?
  • How to promote the service after the initial opening?
  • How to monitor use of new infrastructure, traffic monitoring and promotional campaigns together?

Target audience:
Local authority officers and their consultants that are considering how best to fund a deliver behaviour change interventions in the future without a clear revenue stream such as LSTF.

Venue:
The Hat Factory, Luton. Plus a site visit of the Guided Busway.
