Green Transport in Island Areas (GreTIA)
This project creates a comprehensive green transport policy, research and development action plan for Aegean island areas, accounting for the unique characteristics and growth prospects of the area in its multiple dimensions. This is done through the fusion of ideas, data, and models in four pillars: “travel behavior of resident population”, “tourist preferences”, “environmental analysis”, and “economic and financial evaluation”. The project identifies the factors that affect the study area development by: a) defining the requirements of decision makers; b) investigating individual activity and travel patterns; and c) exploring island destination choice for tourists. Data collection includes network and land use data that characterize living and traveling environments, surveys for residents and tourists, and atmospheric pollution data. Based on this information we develop advanced integrated discrete and latent variable choice models for both tourists and residents to simulate their travel behavior. We also develop environmental and economic models to analyze and evaluate the impact of green transport policies. The final product is a policy platform which includes environmental analysis, travel simulation, and economic analysis.
