Assessing the willingness to use Personal e-Transporters (PeTs): results from a cross-national survey in nine European cities

SWOV researchers Wijlhuizen and Dijkstra coauthored the article 'Assessing the willingness to use Personal e-Transporters (PeTs): results from a cross-national survey in nine European cities' in the magazine Sustainability.
