New article: Will Greeks Cycle? Exploring Intention and Attitudes in the Case of the New Bicycle Network of Patras

Abstract: In this paper, social psychology methods were employed to explore the intention of a Greek city's residents to use a new bicycle network for their mobility needs, the factors affecting this intention, and the residents’ attitudes towards the environment, car use and alternative means of transport. A strong intention to use the new bicycle network was found, complemented by pro-environment, pro-alternative means of transport views and realization of car-related problems. The construction of the bicycle network, along with soft cycle-promotion policies and car-restriction measures, may strengthen the Perceived Behavioural Control and Attitude and, consequently, this intention.

Keywords: Patras-Greece, new bicycle network, theory of planned behaviour, intntion, perceived behavioural control
