Emotional well-being has become an important societal goal given the rising evidence from psychology research that positive emotions have long-lasting benefits for human development. Although daily travel behavior has been found to influence emotional well-being, existing research in the field has focused on limited travel behavior dimensions such as travel mode and/or travel duration. Other dimensions such as travel purpose and travel companionship have received limited attention. Using data from the 2012-2013 American Time Use Survey, this paper offers a comprehensive assessment of how various trip- and personal-level factors relates to various positive and negative emotions.
