PS3743 Psychology of Transportation

Credits: 3.00

The human element is the central focus of all transit systems. How users respond to a transportation system ultimately determines its success or failure. Psychological and behavioral issues range from the small scale (ergonomics of signal and platform design; design that causes slips, trips and falls), to the psychological and psycho-physiological (such as commuter stress), through large-scale implementation (mode choice, social impacts of highways or transit lines).
