Abstract

New technologies have significant effects on travel behaviour, attitudes, habits and potentially future travel demand. Effects may be more prominent for Millennials. Little empirical research has investigated these relationships, mainly due to data limitations. This study focuses on the potential influence of using the Internet while travelling on Millennials’ plans for car ownership. We examine two questions: does using the Internet while travelling influence trip frequencies?; and does it affect Millennials’ intention to purchase a car? Results suggest that Internet use while travelling is positively associated with travel demand and the intention to purchase a car in the near future.
