Abstract

Our research aims to explore the impact of latent variables, mirroring urban travellers’ attitudes and perceptions, on the individual decision making processregarding the mode of transport. The paper describes the first results of an ongoing research activity, which derive from a pilot study conducted in Palermo,the capital of the Sicilian Region (in the south of Italy), and demonstrate that policy makers, in designing a socially desirable and environmentally sustainableurban mobility system, should take into account how travellers perceive the qualitative dimensions of transport.
