Modelling Multimodal Passenger Choices with Stated Preference

Redland Shire Council has recently started the implementation of an Integrated Local Transport Plan (ILTP) that aims to reduce the car dependency by enhancing the usage of alternative modes of transport. A multi mode choice model is required that can forecast the travel behaviour across the region in order to achieve the targets set in ILTP. This paper presents the findings of a state-of-the-art literature review done on mode choice modelling and outlines the development and calibration of a model to investigate the travel behaviour of Redlands’ residents. The present study attempts to develop a nested logit model and calibrate it using data obtained from a stated preference (SP) survey to be conducted in the Shire. The model development will consider all the vital attributes of the travelling modes used in the study area including various public transit access modes. The possibility of combining SP and revealed preference (RP) data to calibrate the model using joint-estimation method will be further assessed. It is expected that the outcomes of the research will assist policy makers in the areas of public transport planning and the development of network for public transport access modes including walkways and cycleways.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
