Abstract

This paper is part of a wider work – developed in the context of URBANETS project - Sustainable Management of Urban Networks with the Use of ICT – on traffic and environmental requirements for Brindisi and Gallipoli. The paper considers different aspects, having as an objective the satisfaction of transport and environmental knowledge needs with particular regard to Gallipoli. The aim is to supply policy indications in the light of population, economic operators and stakeholders exigencies. The paper contains transport and environmental analyses referred to Gallipoli area and results, stemming from a consultation process of transport operators, citizens, tourists, public employees and stakeholders, are presented. Through the statistical analysis of data (which describes the nature of data, explore the relation of the data to the underlying population, create a model and prove its validity), here shortly presented, several insights are provided on needs of specific user categories, as gender issues and social equity are key issues in urban policies. In addition, the potential willingness to pay of users to obtain a general improvement in bus service quality and in environmental conditions is investigated through discrete choice modelling. The idea behind this study is to overcome the crucial impediment in understanding urban travel patterns and the key forces behind user attitudes which normally characterise city surveys. Therefore, attitudinal and behavioural variables are considered to evaluate the propensity of using buses and changing habits for modal choices, more environmental sustainable, through a random utility model. Finally, indications on perspectives and final conclusions are supplied. This paper can represent a useful tool for those who operate in the transport and environmental sectors and for policy-makers as well.
