Description/Abstract

This study attempts to apply an agent-based approach to = modelling travel behaviour. A social dilemma situation of travel mode choice is modelled and viewed as a complex system by considering psychological and sociological aspects, which are represented by individuals’ expectations and social learning mechanisms. We apply an imitation game in order to evolve the decision making rules of each traveller. The study reveals some informed insights for resolving the social dilemma, such as the conditions that make cooperation as a possible outcome. Some behaviour and policy implications are also discussed in this paper.
