Shared autonomous vehicles (SAVs) increase safety, mobility, and reduce emissions. SAV development will benefit from insights into travellers’ acceptance of SAVs. Previous studies adopted either Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) or stated choice (SC) surveys. This study proposes a framework to jointly examine both methods in Australian and China contexts. SC survey design was informed from a qualitative pre-study and collected data on attribute non-attendance (ANA), where respondents ignore attributes. The modelling for the data was two-fold: (1) a structural equation model for behavioural intention and TAM antecedents, (2) different hybrid choice models for SC, TAM latent constructs and handling ANA.
