The potential impacts of automated vehicles (AVs) are far-reaching and complex. They include direct impacts on safety, vehicle operations, energy, environment, and personal mobility, as well as secondary impacts on travel behavior and land use. The objectives of this project are threefold using the results of stated preference survey: (i) assess the behavioral intention to ride in AVs, (ii) investigate the effect of the emergence of shared AVs on mode choice decisions in the short and long run and the corresponding effect on value of travel time savings (VTTS), and (iii) assess the energy and environmental implications due to the emergence of AVs offering single-passenger rides.
