Abstract

Due to recent developments in advanced information and communication technologies (ICT) and increasing application of these technologies in daily life, there is a clear need to investigate the impacts of these technologies on the transport and urban environment. This paper takes into consideration personalized travel information (recommendations), which can be provided by the next generation of ICT. A model to evaluate the impacts of such information on behavioral dynamics of activity-travel patterns is described. The model is built around a proposed framework, which represents individuals’ behavior and decision making process under provision of information. The model mostly focuses on route-choice and destination choice on a daily basis. It considers changing route and destination as the main changes to a daily activity-travel schedule under information provision. The information provider supplies real time information about route conditions and destinations, and gives recommendations to the individuals.
