Abstract

To what extent do experiences in childhood and parental influences shape mobility choices and behaviors in adulthood? This is the central question that this research seeks to answer through an analysis of a unique survey data set that includes variables describing a number of contextual factors from the individual’s childhood. The study presents a joint model of vehicle ownership and transit usage in adulthood as a function of childhood influences and experiences, while controlling for other socio-economic and demographic variables.
