Abstract: Individual motorised traffic causes large societal costs, including environmental, health and congestion-related costs. For designing effective policy measures, it is crucial to have a profound understanding of the determinants of transportation mode choice. The literature on the psychological determinants of transportation mode choice has dealt, amongst others, with basic human values. However, these studies are mostly based on relatively small samples and on self-reported rather that effectively observed data. With our contribution, we want to address this gap. This study is a part of the MOBIS project jointly funded by Federal Roads Office and Swiss Innovation Agency. Within the project, travel behaviour of over 3’500 persons was tracked from September 2019 to January 2020. In addition, two surveys were conducted - one at the beginning, the other at the end of the tracking period. This study is based on up to 30 tracking days and focuses on basic human values and the share of average daily distance made by each transportation mode. The first results of a linear regression analysis show that, when controlled for income, education, age and gender: (1) biospheric values increase the share of bike in the modal split; (2) hedonic values increase, while biospheric values decrease the share of car in the modal split; (3) egoistic values decrease the share of public transport in the modal split; (4) egoistic and biospheric values increase the share of walking in the modal split.
