English Abstract

This study aims to identify reasons for, and restrictions use public and private transport amongst university students and staff, to find out relationships amongst reasons for, and restrictions use public and private transport factors and some related to demographical characteristics factors.

Data collection with sample size (147) concerning university students and staff who were from Engineering College, Mustansiriyah University in Baghdad city.

Introduced special questionnaire for Sustainable Transport of containing 40 items distributed in several domains (Demographical characteristics, Journeys types, preventing you from using public transport, dictating your choice of transport, Initiatives would be to encourage sustainable use, and advertising methods would be to promote sustainable transport), and carried out by University of Bradford.

Transportation methods shows with respect to subject travel to college, vast majority are focused with bus, and using special mass transport, then for leisure and visits, focused with taxi and walk, then for marketing, focused with walk and taxi, then for private work focused with taxi and bus.

For preventing factors from using public transportation, all factors are recorded in at least at acceptable response scale.

For choice of transportation, all factors are recorded in at least at acceptable response scale.

For effective of encourage sustainable transport uses, all factors are recorded in at least at acceptable response scale, since relative sufficiency's coefficients of different factors have recorded values below the upper limit of mentioned scale.

For Effective of advertising methods would be to promote sustainable transport, all advertising is recorded in at least at acceptable effective scale.

Regarding to studied reasons for, and restrictions use public & private transport factors evaluated in light of distribution of some related variables of socio-demographical characteristics variables, shows weak relationships are illustrated, since no significant at P>0.05, except with age groups in contrast of preventing factors, and student's stages at advertising methods, since significant relationships are accounted at P<0.05, and P<0.01 respectively.

Among main conclusions, most of studied individuals have a moderate to high Socio-Economic status, as well as vast majority concerning transport methods by bus, and car-sharing subjected travel to college, and taxi and walking subjected for leisure and visits, and walking and taxi subjected for marketing, while taxi and bus subjected for private work.

For preventing factors from using public transport, transport choices, and effectiveness of encourage sustainable transport uses all studied factors are recorded in at least acceptable response scale.

In addition to that, weak relationships are illustrated, among studied main factors of reasons for, and restrictions use public & private transport factors evaluated and some related variables of (SDCv.).
