MoTiv (Mobility and Time Value)

Type: International Project Project

Duration: from 2017 Nov 01 to 2020 Apr 30

Financed by: Horizon 2020

Prime Contractor: ZILINSKA UNIVERZITA V ZILINE (University) -Eslováquia

The “Mobility and Time Value” (MoTiV) addresses emerging needs and perspectives on Value of Travel Time (VTT), a relevant research area particularly valuable to decision-makers, transportation planners, engineers, and economists in the context of projects aiming at enhancing transportation infrastructure. MoTiV main goal is to contribute to advance research on VTT by introducing and validating a conceptual framework for the estimation of VTT through a European-wide data collection. The data will be gathered through the MoTiV smartphone app, which combines and integrates in an innovative way features from a multi-modal “journey planner” and an “activity/mobility diary”. At a conceptual level, the project introduces a new definition and methodology for the estimation of VTT based on the value proposition of mobility. This approach allows exploring emerging views of VTT that consider not only its economic dimension, but also motivations, preferences and behaviours linked to the broader concept of individual well-being.
