  • Reducing uncertainty and supporting cognitive maps in travel information for public transport

    One cause of negative attitudes towards public transport may be due to feelings of uncertainty that travellers experience. We argue that these negative feelings are due to a lack of information and that, in public transport, besides the regular service information, information should also be provided that helps to reduce uncertainty, i.e., information which supports the cognitive map of the ...
