ABSTRACT

This study investigated the patterns of rail travellers’ mobility behaviour. Particular attention in this study has been given to young travellers in their twenties and who travel with the ‘Railro’ rail ticket. Using O/D analysis, this study identified possible determinants of travellers’ mobility behaviour in their rail travel. Gravity model was employed to statistically examine the role of the determinants. The questionnaire survey was conducted in Suncheon area, one of the most popular destinations among the Railro rail ticket holders. This study found that travel time and physical distance are not constraints in their visit. Second, the ticket users move to lower urbanised regions. Moreover, the ticket users do not travel to one destination but to multi-destinations. They travel longer distance on the first day of their travel but travel shorter distance on the second day. Lastly, despite holding the rail ticket, they also visit various regions inaccessible by train using connected other transportations. These results provide implications for establishing plans for the regional development and the revitalization of the regional economy as well as developing tourism destination and resources using the main railway stations.
