Individual travel behaviour in Australia is a major contributor to the congestion suffered in most cities. This chapter focusses on voluntary behaviour change and how such change may be effected in relation to travel behaviour. The chapter presents a short summary of urban planning designed to achieve sustainable transport systems. This is followed by information about three behaviour change models and theoretical issues that affect behaviour change. The chapter closes with information from interviews and focus groups with community members about how and why they make travel choices and how this information might be used to develop suitable interventions to increase the use of public transport and active transport.
