Car availability - new insights into model specification and selection for composite marginal likelihood estimation
Car availability - new insights into model specification and selection for composite marginal likelihood estimation. Presentation by Dr Romain Crastes for the Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) Seminar Series: www.its.leeds.ac.uk/about/events/seminar-series Abstract: This presentation investigates the determinants of car availability in Germany using a unique life course calendar data-set that covers 27 years of data. Modelling car availability over the life course requires to account for spurious state dependence (\emph{i.e.} autocorrelation of the errors). The dimension of integration increases with the number of time periods considered which rules out Maximum Simulated Likelihood (MSL) estimation techniques. An alternative is to use the Composite Marginal Likelihood (CML) inference approach, which replaces high-dimensional integrals by a compounding of bivariate probabilities. The current paper delves into the issue of how to form and select CML functions. Indeed, CML is a flexible tool and different pairs of bivariate margins can be used, leading to different results. The typical approach consists in using the pairing combinations of temporally close choice situations. In this paper, we suggest instead to use randomly selected pairs for each individual. We estimate a series of autoregressive random effects ordered probit models built from both close and random pairs and compare the results obtained using various goodness-of-fit indicators. Our results suggest that random pairs provide better fit and are computationally much less burdensome. These promising results also allow us to unravel the important role played by spurious state dependence in car availability across the life course.

METROPOLY 2011
The ITS METROPOLY Game! On 30th September 2011 teams of ITS students visited a selection of interesting and unusual destinations across West Yorkshire using only public transport services (rail and bus). Points were awarded for each place visited and at the end of the day the team with the highest number of points were crowned the ITS Metropoly champions 2011. Each team were given Day Rover tickets - unlimited travel for the whole day by rail and bus across the West Yorkshire Metro area. Teams could split into smaller groups and travel independently to increase the number of destinations visited. Careful planning and good use of public transport were vital to successful completion of the challenge. License : All Rights Reserved

Preference elicitation using triangles! – Dr Danny Campbell
Stated preference elicitation techniques, such as discrete choice experiments and best-worst scaling, are now widely used to explore the public’s choices and preferences. In this paper, we propose an alternative stated preference elicitation technique, which we refer to as ‘trio-wise’. We explain this new technique, its relative advantages, modelling framework, and how it compares to the best-worst scaling method. We demonstrate this new preference elicitation technique using an empirical case study that explores preferences among the general public for ways to involve them in decisions concerning the health care system. Our findings show that the best-worst scaling and trio-wise preference elicitation techniques both retrieve similar preferences. However, the capability of our trio-wise method to provide additional information on the strength of rank preferences and its ability to accommodate indifferent preferences lead us to prefer it over the standard best-worst scaling technique.

Renewable fuels in public transport
ITS Research Seminar 31/10/2017. Presentation by Malin Aldenius, Lund University, Sweden 'Introducing renewable fuels in public bus transport – challenges and opportunities' Abstract I will present results from the studies conducted during my PhD so far, with focus on experiences from Swedish public transport regions. In Sweden, public transport was partly deregulated in 2012, which has led to that public transport mainly is organised on the basis of a comprehensive competitive tendering regime. However, some regions organise their buses in-house. I will address questions concerning the strategic motivations for using public procurement to stimulate renewable fuels, and what the practical challenges have been in relation to: strategies, costs, size and knowledge. I will also discuss how different ways to set requirements and organise public transport has influenced type and share of renewable fuels in regions, as well as which challenges and opportunities they have experienced. The findings come from qualitative comparative case studies, based on interviews and document studies. Bio: Doctoral student at Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund University, since 2015. Publications: Aldenius, M., Khan, J. (2017). Strategic use of green public procurement in the bus sector: Challenges and opportunities. Journal of Cleaner Production, 164, 250-257. On-going studies: - The influence of public transport’s organisation on type and share of renewable fuel. - Introducing electrified public transport in cities: challenges and opportunities
