SYNOPSIS

Megacities worldwide have been employing some form of traffic information systems to manage their road network and to mitigate congestion. However, the full benefits of such systems can only be achieved if drivers perceive the system to be of adequate quality for them to actually use the disseminated information in their travel choices. This talk presents the research findings of the impact of travel information on traveller behaviour by taking Klang Valley as a case study. The research questions answered are: (1) how the CCTV images shown via websites/apps influence traveller behaviour; (2) is the travel information apps effective in influencing driver route choice; (3) how travel information could play a role in promoting mode choice? These findings are important to the transport operators and decision makers in understanding the use of travel information system as an active travel demand management tool to mitigate traffic congestion.
