Travel costs measured

A new research study by the Institute for Transport Studies will provide the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) with expert guidance on how work and non-working travel time should be valued in transport modelling and appraisal.

The work aims to quantify the value of travel time on UK roads and public transport and will influence long-term planning decisions.

A team led by Professor Peter Mackie and Mark Wardman of the institute, together with John Bates and Phil Goodwin, will report next spring.
