  1. 1. Towards electrified public bus transport : The case of Stockholm

    Författare :Maria Xylia; Semida Silveira; Maria Börjesson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electric bus; charging infrastructure; optimisation; public transport; fossil-free; transport planning; Sweden; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis addresses the challenge of road transport electrification using a systems approach for the particular context of Stockholm’s public transport system. The objective is to identify the benefits of large-scale bus electrification on energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the cost and planning considerations required for achieving such a shift.

  2. 2. Communication technology and travel demand models

    Författare :Maria Börjesson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Travel survey; Transport mode; Telecommuting; Mathematical model; Motivation; 11 Road: Personal transport; 11 Road: Personal transport;

    Sammanfattning : Transportation planners have traditionally focused on physical travel only, and disregarded the fact that other modes of communication may influence travel demand. However, modern telecommunications are rapidly increasing the accessibility to activities that previously only could be reached by physical transportation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Issues in Urban Travel Demand Modelling : ICT Implications and Trip timing choice

    Författare :Maria Börjesson; Staffan Algers; Kay Axhausen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Journey; Mathematical model; Origin traffic ; Time; Telecommuting; Journey time; Variability; Stated preference; Delay; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; 11 Road: Personal transport; 11 Road: Personal transport; Travel Demand; ICT; Tele-substitution; Revealed Preference; Stated Preference; Mixed Logit; Unobserved Heterogeneity; Travel Time Uncertainty; Schedule Delay;

    Sammanfattning : Travel demand forecasting is essential for many decisions, such as infrastructure investments and policy measures. Traditionally travel demand modelling has considered trip frequency, mode, destination and route choice. This thesis considers two other choice dimensions, hypothesised to have implications for travel demand forecasting. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Methods for Capacity Allocation in Deregulated Railway Markets

    Författare :Abderrahman Ait Ali; Jonas Eliasson; Anders Peterson; Maria Börjesson; Yves Crozet; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; railway capacity; capacity allocation; train timetable; cost benefit analysis; deregulated market; spårkapacitet; kapacitetstilldelning; tågtidtabell; samhällsekonomisk analys; avreglerad marknad;

    Sammanfattning : Faced with increasing challenges, railways around Europe have recently undergone major reforms aiming to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of the railway sector. New market structures such as vertical separation, deregulation and open access can allow for reduced public expenditures, increased market competition, and more efficient railway systems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Explaining Trends in Car Use

    Författare :Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Jonas Eliasson; Oded Cats; Patricia Mokhtarian; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car use; peak car; VMT; VKT; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Many western countries have seen a plateau and subsequent decline in car travel during the early 21st century. What has generated particular interest and debate is the claim that the development cannot only be explained by changes in traditional explanatory factors such as GDP, fuel prices and land-use.
