Estimating An Incentive Elasticity of Demand for Non-motorized Transportation

Estimating An Incentive Elasticity of Demand for Non-motorized Transportation

Principal Investigator: Dr. Jane Kolodinsky (Community Development and Applied Economics)

Funding Agency: US DOT

Project Summary

Transportation and obesity are two of this decade’s largest public policy challenges, with non-motorized commuting at the nexus of the two issues. Economists and transportation planners have long been studying mode choice and predicting demand for motorized alternatives. This research represents a preliminary investigation into demand for non-motorized commute modes and the role policy may play in promoting these modes.
