According to random utility theory, there is no clear distinction between the utility inferred from observed choices (decision utility), the experienced outcome of decision makers’ (experienced utility) or their retrospective evaluation (remembered utility). While empirical experiments have shown that decision utility and remembered utility do not perfectly coincide, little is known regarding the magnitude of this discrepancy, especially in the transport field. Using a cross-sectional travel survey, the objective of this paper is to quantify the relationship between commuters’ stated choice satisfaction (a proxy for remembered utility) and the Logsum function of the utility of all available modes of transport (decision utility). This is of tremendous importance, as implemented transport policy measures, which aim to increase the overall decision makers’ utility, may have low impact on their satisfaction level and thus be ineffective. Results indicate that the utility Logsum is associated with respondents’ commuting satisfaction. However, context specificities have an important impact on this association. [less ▲]

In the recent years, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has emerged as a new player in research as part of a strategy to foster its knowledge for both economical and societal developments. In the transport research field, the University of Luxembourg (created in 2003) with its Geography and Spatial Planning Institute (created in 2007) and its Transport Engineering group (created in 2012) joined forces with the public research institution LISER (previously CEPS-INSTEAD) to organize the 2013 Transport Research Day of the BIVEC. Looking backward to the event while preparing this editorial, we can see it actually played a kick-off role for the international diffusion of Luxembourg research on transport and related land-use issues, and was a good occasion to shed lights on Luxembourg specificities and commonalities within the Benelux, which we like to stress in this editorial.
