Testing the convergent- and predictive validity of a multi-dimensional belief-based scale for attitude towards personal safety on public bus/ minibus for long-distance trips in Ghana: A SEM analysis

We examined the predictive validity of the public bus passenger safety attitude scale (PBPSAS), a measure of
personal safety attitude (PSA), to predict future intention to use public bus/minibus for long-distance trips. Using
510 adults, we tested among other things the hypothesis that PSA has a positive significant effect on future
intentions to use public bus/minibus for long-distance trips. Data analyses involved: (1) descriptive analyses of
measure reliabilities and the strength and evaluation of people’s safety-related beliefs, (2) fitting measurement

Investigating factors affecting bus/minibus accident severity in a developing country for different subgroup datasets characterised by time, pavement, and light conditions

Developing countries are primarily associated with poor roadway and lighting infrastructure challenges, which
has a considerable effect on their traffic accident fatality rates. These rates are further increased as bus/minibus
drivers indulge in risky driving, mainly during weekends when traffic and police surveillance is low to maximise
profits. Although these factors have been mentioned in the literature as key indicators influencing accident
severity of buses/minibuses, there is currently no study that explored the complex mechanisms underpinning the

Injury-severity analysis of intercity public transport in Ghana- A random parameters multinomial logit with heterogeneity in means and variances approach

Travel by bus is an efficient, cost-effective, safe and preferred means of intercity transport in many advanced
countries. On the contrary, there is huge public sentiment about the safety records of intercity buses in low- and
middle-income countries given the increasing bus-involved road traffic crashes and high fatality rates. This study
sought to model the injury severity of intercity bus transport in Ghana using the random parameters multinomial
logit with heterogeneity in means and variances modelling technique to account for unobserved heterogeneity in
