he introduction of new public transport systems can influence society in a multitude of ways ranging from modal choices and the environment to economic growth. This paper examines the determinants of light rail mode choice for medium- and long-distance trips (10 to 40 km) for a new light rail system in Flanders, Belgium. To investigate these choices, the effects of various transport system-specific factors (i.e., travel cost, in-vehicle travel time, transit punctuality, waiting time, access and egress time, transfers, and availability of seats) as well as the travelers' personal traits were analyzed by using an alternating logistic regression model, which explicitly takes into account the correlated responses for binary data. The data used for the analysis stem from a stated preference survey conducted in Flanders. The modeling results are in line with literature: most transport system-specific factors as well as socioeconomic variables, attitudinal factors, perceptions, and the frequency of using public transport contribute significantly to the preference for light rail transit. In particular, the results indicate that the use of light rail is strongly influenced by travel cost and in-vehicle travel time and to a lesser extent by waiting and access-egress time. Seat availability appeared to play a more important role than did transfers in deciding to choose light rail transit. The findings of this paper can be used by policy makers as a frame of reference to make light rail transit more successful. [less ▲]

The introduction of new public transport systems can influence society in a multitude of ways, ranging from modal choices and the environment to economic growth. This paper examines the determinants of light rail mode choice for medium/long distance trips (10-40km) for a new light rail system in Flanders, Belgium. To investigate these choices, the effects of various transport system specific factors (i.e. travel cost, in-vehicle travel time, transit punctuality, waiting time, access/egress time, transfers, and the availability of empty seats) as well as the travelers’ personal traits, are analyzed using an alternating logistic regression model, which explicitly takes into account the correlated responses for binary data. The data used for the analysis stem from a stated preference survey which was conducted in Flanders, Belgium. The modeling results yield findings that are in line with literature: most transport system specific factors as well as socio-economic variables, attitudinal factors, perceptions and the frequency of using public transport contribute significantly to the preference of light rail transit. In particular, it is shown that the use of light rail is strongly influenced by travel cost and in-vehicle travel time and to a lesser extent by waiting and access/egress time. It also appeared that seat availability plays a more important role than transfers in the decision process to choose light rail transit. The findings of this paper can be used by policy makers as a frame of reference to make light rail transit more successful. [less ▲]

The principal goal of this research is to model object’s evolution in space and time; it implies questioning identity, space and time. First, we define the concept of object spatio-temporal state. This concept allows modelling object identity evolution. Indeed, managing object identity must not be related to the object spatiality. In other words, we assume that the existence of an object is not dependant of its spatial extension. We show that there exist a lot of relationships associated to objects which does not yet exist or which does not exist anymore. We show also that when objects are not visible during an interval of time, it does not imply the lost of their identity. The model we propose aims at providing a framework for non-existent and non-visible objects Then, we study the spatio-temporal interactions between objects. The proposed solution is to define relationships between objects spatio-temporal states. It appears that the proposed set of relationships is a generalized vision of existing spatio-temporal reasoning models. Knowing that space-time continuity is not preserved in qualitative modelling, we apply the dominance theory which aims at retrieving continuous transitions between qualitative states. This development provides formal definitions of possible transition between spatio-temporal states relationships. Logically, the next step is to study the possible evolution of these spatio-temporal states relationships. This leads to the development of a formal model called “life and motion configurations”. This iconic representation gives a simplified view of the spatio-temporal evolution between two objects. It can be used to formalize the relationship between two spatio-temporal histories. In this work, we prove that this language is sufficient to provide spatio-temporal knowledge on moving objects. It determines also a framework in which others spatio-temporal reasoning models can be classified. Based on life and motion configurations, we propose two applications. Firstly, the life and motion configurations are generalised into a set of 25 relationships representing spatio-temporal information with a high level of abstraction. We believe that this set is close to people perception of spatio-temporal information. Secondly, two natural language interpretations of life and motion configurations are proposed; one applied to generalized spatio-temporal relationships, one applied to spatio-temporal predicates used in common French language.

En 1990 et en 1998, nous avons eu l’occasion de distribuer un questionnaire à plus de 800 étudiants de sept écoles secondaires de la région de Québec dans le but, entre autres, de déterminer certaines composantes de leurs sentiments d’appartenance. La comparaison de données, à une dizaine d’années d’intervalle, s’avère instructive, d’autant plus que nos résultats sont analysés à l’aide d’une méthode multidimensionnelle, la classification ascendante hiérarchique, qui nous permet de décomposer les images globales en une série de profils de réponses et de regrouper les individus interrogés en fonction des similitudes de ce profil. La pluralité des conceptions propres à chaque individu peut ainsi être mise en évidence dans nos échantillons, ce qui nous empêche de considérer la perception des différentes identités nationales comme une réalité homogène. On retiendra, entre autres, qu’en dix ans d’intervalle, la fierté d’être Québécois comme celle d’être Canadien a diminué de 20 % en comparant les échantillons globalement. Toutefois, l’enquête de 1998 nous montre également qu’au delà des options constitutionnelles préférées (63 % de l’échantillon privilégient d’abord l’indépendance ou la souveraineté-partenariat), le fait de considérer simultanément les indicateurs de fierté, de l’image des groupes linguistiques et de la hiérarchie des priorités offre un portrait beaucoup plus nuancé des positions des élèves de secondaire 4 et 5. À sa façon, les contradictions d’une société distincte s’y retrouvent toujours illustrées. [less ▲]
