Travel demand forecasting model/Travel behaviour analysis
Discrete Choice Model using attitudinal data and behavioral data
Questionnaire survey and data analysis

Achivements/proposals via industry-academia collabolations

Suggestion and evaluation of measures to reduce traffic congestion during ”Nagaoka-Hanabi” festival
Performance verification and multi-objective optimal allocation of ”Michi-no-eki”
Impact analysis of highway fare incentive measures
Bus and community bus planning

Areas interesting to interact with

People who work on regional vitalization
People who is interested in transportation planning


Our partners are mainly ”Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism” and ”local governments”, but we are also promoting joint research and exchange with private companies and civic groups (such as NPO).
