Travel Behavior Research Group

This is the research group of Prof. Gulsah Akar at The Ohio State University’s (OSU) City and Regional Planning Program (C&RP). Welcome to our website!

We conduct research on transportation planning and policy with a focus on travel demand forecasting, travel behavior and links between land-use and transportation. Our research centers on modeling behavior, travel choices and individuals’ perceptions to forecast future patterns under changing socio-economic, technology, land-use and built environment scenarios using the latest methodological and conceptual advances in the transportation field.
