Travel mode choice and car ownership in Guangzhou, China

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

The objective is to understand intentions to buy a car and how car-ownership together with other factors influences travel mode choice. A survey (N=1,000) was carried out in Guangzhou in four districts of the city. The survey examined respondents' car ownership, travel mode choices, and personal and situational characteristics. Quota sampling was used to select members of three different groups: (1) car owners; (2) planning to buy a car within the next 5 years; and (3) no car and not planning to buy one. We find that car ownership is the most important predictor of travel mode choice, which also depends on other factors, but only indirectly (mediated through car ownership) by attitudinal factors. However, attitudinal factors have a strong impact on the intention to buy a car, while controlling for other personal and context factors, which play a smaller role. Implications for policy are inferred.
