Pedestrians’ Valuations of Footpaths

Source: Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI)

The background to this study is an inquiry by the Swedish Transport Administration to develop methods for benefit-cost analyses for pedestrians' appraisals of their walking environment and how different improvements in the environment affect decisions to walk.

In the present report, three different studies are presented. The first is a pilot study involving a literature review, a focus group interview, and a questionnaire survey. The second study is a survey study aimed to estimate pedestrians appraisals of different walking environments. The third study is also a survey but with the purpose of studying commuters' demand for various types of pathways.
