Investigation into travel modes of TOD users : impacts of personal and transit characteristics
Muley, Deepti S., Bunker, Jonathan M., & Ferreira, Luis (2009) Investigation into travel modes of TOD users : impacts of personal and transit characteristics. International Journal of ITS Research, 7(1), pp. 3-13.
Transit Oriented Developments (TODs) are often designed to promote the use of sustainable modes of transport and reduce car usage. This paper investigates the effect of personal and transit characteristics on travel choices of TOD users. Binary logistic regression models were developed to determine the probability of choosing sustainable modes of transport including walking, cycling and public transport. Kelvin Grove Urban Village (KGUV) located in Brisbane, Australia was chosen as case study TOD. The modal splits for employees, students, shoppers and residents showed that 47% of employees, 84% of students, 71% of shoppers and 56% of residents used sustainable modes of transport.
