TitleUnderlying factors in the take-up of active travel for young adults
AuthorsBailey TJ, Wundersitz LN, Thompson JP
Year2019
TypeConference Paper
AbstractSince at least 2000, declines in young adult driver licensing have been observed in several overseas countries and in some Australian jurisdictions. This study investigates driver licensing trends in South Australia since 2009 for those aged 17-24 years, in comparison to other age groups and equivalent Victorian data. Importantly, the trends are examined in relation to gender, location of residence and socio-economic status. The findings will have implications for future planning around safe active travel, shared vehicle use and public transport initiatives.
