Abstract [en]

Recent years have seen a rapid growth of ICT-services related to the transportation area, and for example Advanced Travel Information Services (ATIS) have been proposed as one means to achieve a decrease of environmental impacts of transportation through behavioural change. However, empirical studies have shown that travel planning in every day life is a fragmented, distributed and fluid process, that is not as enclosed in time and space, or delimited in its content, as today’s ICT-services for travel planning imply – in spite of smart and mobile solutions. Hence, in this paper we discuss the role of planning and coordination in the time-constrained travel-choices of everyday life, together with the question of which time horizons and what decisions that are part of today’s travel planning services. Furthermore we will also sketch how travel planners of tomorrow, linked with other ICT-services, could be designed in order to stretch the horizon of assistance so that they are better equipped to support travel planning processes in everyday life. We will also critically discuss the role of travel information services and ICT as being a part of the work for more sustainable mobility.
