Abstract
Cycling as work-school activity is considered significant urban mobility option among Flemish road users. New provisions introduced by Flemish govt needs to be investigated, and what are its possible influence and perception among weak road users. Hence stated preference survey was conducted among 817 Flemish weak road users who mostly use Urban regions i.e. Antwerp, Ghent and their respective suburban periphery. This study identifies cyclists into four categories i.e. Active Cyclists, Potential Cyclists, Pro Car, Pro Public transport or walk. The study aims at improving cycling facility for a safer perception for cyclists in order to alleviate active urban mobility options. The survey includes attitudes towards, effective, coherent infrastructure, risk perception, motivation/barriers to cycle, and different cycling conditions one faces on daily routine basis. This manuscript uses hybrid choice modelling to investigate user preferences. Explanatory variables such as income, age, education level, dangerous intersections, coherent and effective infrastructure are found significant confirming earlier literature. Whereas policies which promote cycling are found not to have a significant influence except tax benefits. Overall the respondents were satisfied with new mobility regulations but showed desire of further improvement.
