Travel behavior is the study of what people do over space, and how people use transport. The questions studied in travel behavior are broad, and are very much related to activity analysis and time use research studies.
How many trips do people make?Where do they go? (What is the destination?)What mode do they take?Who accompanies whom?When is the trip made? What is the schedule?What is the sequence or pattern of trips?What route choices do people make?Why do people travel? (Why can't people stay at home and telecommute or teleshop?)
Other behavioral aspects of travelling regard e.g.:letting people get off before entering a vehicle, queueing behavior, etc.; see also Passenger behavior in Shanghai
