Is 'fake news' influencing your town centre decisions? Much has been made of fake news influencing voting behaviour in recent months, but could a similar thing be happening in town and city centres?
Tony Bertoia Abstract Since the mids, voluntary travel behaviour change VTBC has emerged in Australia as a potentially significant policy initiative, with promise to reduce dependence on the car, and to contribute to some degree to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from transport, and to a reduction in local traffic congestion Ampt and Rooney, ; James, ; Ampt, ; James et al.
While this policy has been introduced in pilot and full-scale versions in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, and Townsville, it has only recently been considered for the Sydney region. However, it is a policy that appears to have been initiated in Australia James et al.
TravelSmart projects convey information about travel and activity alternatives and attempt to motivate people to change their travel behaviour. TravelSmart typically focuses on helping individuals to identify travel options that are realistic, achievable, and convenient, and that provide personal benefits.
The alternatives promoted can include finding alternative activity locations, combining travel with other family members, eliminating some travel altogether, and changing from solo drive to car passenger, public transport, bicycling, and walking. In some instances, mode change is the primary focus of the strategy, while in others, the focus is on reducing overall travel.
Evaluation of the effectiveness of the TravelSmart program was undertaken by the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies of the University of Sydney.
