Workers' attitude towards bus rapid transit in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Nasrin, Sharmin, Bunker, Jonathan M., & Zheng, Zuduo (2015) Workers' attitude towards bus rapid transit in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In Transportation Research Board 94th Annual Meeting, 11-15 January 2015, Washington, D.C.


This study investigates:

–how travel and socio-demographic attributes act on workers’ mode choice decisions in Dhaka

–whether Dhaka’s commuters would choose BRT for their work trip once implemented

•Very limited research exists on users’ perceptions of BRT in developing countries’ megacities

•We adopted a discrete choice modelling approach

•As BRT has not yet been implemented in Dhaka, we collected Stated Choice (SC) survey data including a hypothetical BRT mode to understand factors important to workers’ mode choice decisions

•We compare the impact of travel factors between Dhaka and cities of developed countries

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
