Reducing car use by positive interventions with the aid of smartphone technology can be a potential policy measure. Stated choice experiment and a real-world experiment based on a smartphone app provide insights into the interventions design and travel behavioural change. Results show that cycling challenges and rewards can nudge travellers away from cars to bikes in a short-term and have the potential for the sustained behavioural change over a longer-term.
