Abstract : Due to rising carbon dioxide emissions and recent climate change events, there is an increasing focus on adopting sustainable road transport. These issues are reflected in more recent research findings on the adoption of sustainable road transport in recent years. This study aims to undertake a meta- and weight analysis of earlier quantitative articles on the adoption of sustainable road transportation, with the goal of providing a broad outline of the event. Ninety-two articles from the last 12 years were selected to conduct this study. Analysis of these 92 articles found that 31 variables were the best predictors, and 15 were promising predictors. The associations between subjective norm and behavioral intention were also moderated by socioeconomic factors such as the human development index and the sustainable mobility index, environmental factors such as the average air quality index and the environmental protection index, energy-related factors such as the availability of renewable energy, and cultural factors such as power distance, individualism, masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, and long-term orientation. Also, the research found that the theory of planned behavior was the most frequently used and that electric vehicles were the most commonly used sustainable transport mode. Researchers who are promoting the use of sustainable mobility will find the results of this study helpful.
