Current projects

Understanding the automobility decisions of Australian millennials

The aim of this project is to understand the complexity of decision-making around driver licensing and car travel of Australian millennials. The historical growth in car use is coming to an end as young adults are becoming less
likely to get a licence and drive cars. The millennial generation is poised between two key life stages – the first opportunity to get a driving licence and the transition into adulthood. Understanding how millennials navigate
these key mobility transitions could significantly reduce road deaths and injuries, road congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
