Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingMeeting abstract (Book)

Abstract

In this paper we give an overview of the different MCDA-methods used in the field of transport, which criteria are taken into account, for which kind of decisions and if the participation of stakeholders is included. This review allows us to come to a general framework for the evaluation of transport projects. To conclude, we propose the multiple-actor MCDA approach as a direction for further research. This method is able to cope with the different aspects of sustainable mobility and the involvement of stakeholders in the decision process.
