Abstract:   (1843 Views)
The median of Iran population is much younger than many developed countries. This has impacts on the overall transportation behavior of the society.  In this research it is found that there is a significant Pearson correlation (-0.765) between median age and fatalities in different countries of the world. A questionnaire is developed to analyze the importance of various factors in choosing mode of transport. It was then distributed among some bus, train and plane passengers on Tehran-Isfahan route. A total number of 766 passengers filled in the questionnaires. For this survey the Cronbach’s alpha factor was calculated to be 0.763 that is an acceptable level. The respondents were divided into two groups of youth under 25 years old and other age groups. The importance of seven factors for their transportation mode of choice is calculated. By performing T-tests it is found that for air transportation there is no significant difference for any of the factors. But for railway mode of transportation “range of choice for departure times” and for road transportation “importance of viewing the landscape” is significantly different.
