Abstract: Travelling in a city is an essential part of everyone’s life, whether it is the routine daily commute or navigating to a previously unknown place, and can be accomplished with a variety of means of transport. This thesis explores how personal, first-hand route knowledge influences choice of mode of transport. This is motivated by the premise that human-oriented approach for computer systems design can be of significant benefit to the user. Public (bus, train, tram, metro) and private (bicycle, car, on foot) means of transport are considered and compared. Collected survey data analysed with a logistic regression method does not show any relationship between route knowledge and choice of mode of transport.
