Research Report 105 Public transport value for money measures

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This project was an initial examination of means of assessing the value for money being achieved from individual publicly-funded transport services. The feasibility of a national system to derive passenger kilometres and/or passenger boardings per $ subsidy for all contracted services at the route/time period or contract level was assessed. This involved a pilot study of two regions to identify data problems and analysis difficulties. Conclusions were drawn from this pilot study for a national system.

Research Report 338 Developing school-based cycle trains in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

A cycle train is similar in approach to the ‘walking school bus’ – adult volunteer ‘conductors’ cycle along a set route to school, collecting children from designated ‘train stops’ along the way. They are well established in Belgium and are beginning to appear in the United Kingdom. Previous research in New Zealand found a high level of interest in the cycle train concept, leading us to design and conduct a trial for implementing cycle train networks here.

Research Report 514 The contribution of public transport to economic productivity

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The objective of this research was to quantify the contribution of public transport to economic productivity.

Research Report 161 Model for forecasting vehicle ownership in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The vehicle-ownership forecasting model research project, undertaken in 1996–1997, is described. The two principal objectives of the research are to provide:

Research Report 057 Parking demand and trip generation

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

List showing priorities of land uses for which data on parking demand and trip generation were required by traffic engineers and town planners have been prepared.

Research Report 136 Park & ride policies and criteria

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

In urban areas with relatively low population densities and high car ownership, as in New Zealand, 'park and ride' (P+R) is a potentially powerful urban transport policy tool. It is being adopted in cities worldwide (including UK, Europe, and Australia) as a major component of urban transport policies to restrain road traffic and to encourage public transport use. This report describes a project, carried out in 1998, to develop guidelines and criteria to assist in the planning and demand estimation for P+R policies and facilities in New Zealand's major urban centres. It will have direct applications in urban transport policy development and planning studies, including modelling and evaluation aspects. P+R attempts to combine the benefits of both car use and public transport use into an efficient and effective system and to transfer parking demand from the central business district (CBD) to suburban/urban fringe locations. International experience with P+R is reviewed.

Research Report 369 Trends in older people's travel patterns

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

We updated our earlier study of older people’s travel patterns using the 1997/98 New Zealand Household Travel Survey (NZHTS) with a comparative analysis using the recently compiled 2004–07 Ongoing NZHTS database (ONZHTS).

Research Report 230 Evaluation of automatic bicycle counters in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This report summarises research undertaken in Christchurch, New Zealand, between October 2001 and May 2002, to evaluate automatic bicycle counting technologies. A literature review and consultation with key staff in road controlling authorities were undertaken to select the equipment to test.

Research Report 197 Development of benefit parameter research approaches

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This project developed market research techniques for deriving improved values for the unit benefit parameters specified by Transfund New Zealand for use in transport project evaluation throughout New Zealand. It focused on the use of stated preference and related techniques for the valuation of parameters for which market-based valuations are not available: particular attention was paid to level of service and travel time parameters. The project included: appraisal of techniques used in selected countries to derive unit benefit parameters for use in transprt project evaluation; review of international developments and experience in the use of stated preference and similar techniques, including appraisal of experimental design methods; and development of recommendations on research approaches and survey methods for deriving improved unit benefit parameters in the New Zealand context.

Research Report 545 - The relationship between crash rates and rutting

Published: | Category: Safety, security and public health , Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This report details research carried out in Wellington, New Zealand, over the period 2012–13. The broad aim was to develop relationships between rut depths and crashes on New Zealand's state highway network.
