    Abstract

    This paper presents the results of a range of data analyses of users' attitudinal responses to various travel-demand management measures in two case-study cities in the UK: Cambridge and Newcastle upon Tyne. The analyses focus on several important aspects of implementing TDM measures, including the relationship between the perceived effectiveness and public acceptance of alternative TDM measures and how the generated net benefits, in particular the revenues raised from road-user charging and increased parking charges, are used. A number of key issues are identified for the implementation of TDM measures that are both acceptable to the public and also capable of achieving their stated objectives.
