摘要：Metropolises in emerging markets are facing serious urban transportchallenges. Understanding people’s travel preferences is crucial for designingeffective sustainable urban policies. This talk discusses the study of travelpreferences in the metropolitan area of Beijing, which is notoriously plaguedwith high degrees of congestion. This study includes a series of interwovenstated preference experiments on travel behavior with a semi-random sample of2652 respondents participated in the experiments. The results, estimated by ascaled mixed logit model, provide rich information on how trade-offs are madeamong the manipulated attributes regarding travel time, cost, convenience, andreliability. Many findings deviate from results obtained in developed countries.
