E-Bikes in Travel Demand Models

Modelling, macroscopic, ownership, mode choice, route choice, travel demand, e-bike, pedelec

Electric bicycles increase the attractiveness of cycling across user groups, trip purposes, and topographically challenging areas. Despite rapid growth of electric bicycle traffic, macroscopic transport models used in practice do not yet distinguish between electric and conventional bicycles, limiting their predictive power and usefulness. My research aims to develop and implement models for ownership, mode, and route choice of bicycles that differentiate by mode of propulsion based on mobility surveys and other sources such as spatial data. The results of this research will contribute to more accurate and useful transport models, enabling more targeted cycling planning and policy.
