Our general purpose is to analyze decisions related to mode choice and residential location, with a special emphasis on within-family decision process and on policy implications. Our approach extends the current literature by explicitly recognizing that the decisions of different family members are interrelated and we describe them as the outcome of a within-family bargaining process. On the one hand, this project will provide a new application field to family economics, and on the other hand, urban and transportation economics will benefit from economic literature on bargaining and collective decisions, largely ignored till now, with a few exceptions by some consortium members.
