[en] The overall final objective of this study is to investigate the effect of road pricing on people’s
tendency to adapt their current travel behaviour. In order to reach this goal, a two-stage
hierarchical model is estimated, concentrated around the concept of public acceptability. The
research was conducted in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, by means of an
interactive stated adaptation survey, administered on the internet, involving 300 respondents.
It is found that behavioural changes themselves are not dependent on the perceived
acceptability of road pricing. In addition, earlier findings concerning the acceptability of push
measures are validated, and the relevance of using latent factors rather than aggregate
indicators is illustrated.
