To explore the relationship between individual characteristics and residents’ travel attitude toward weather information, the hypothesis of dependence of travel attitude on individual characteristics was formally tested. Stated adaptation surveys were conducted to collect residents’ attitudes toward weather information. Then Statistical analysis of Pearson chi-square independence tests were employed on the basis of empirical data collected in Nanjing, China. Results from both the descriptive analysis and the statistical test confirmed that the individual characteristics mattered and that the likelihood of residents changing their travel behaviors in response to weather information they acquired was highly dependent on some of individual characteristics.
