A Fuzzy Approach for Quantifying Accessibility to Public Transit System

The measures used to define accessibility of a public transit system (PTS) fail to address the user perspective of accessibility to the transit system with a feeder service. In this study, a fuzzy accessibility measure employing temporal impedances experienced by the PTS users and the value they associate with each of the impedance was developed for quantifying access to the PTS. A predictive model was developed using neural networks to ascertain the impact of quantified accessibility on choice behavior of the users. Data for this study were collected in Indore City in India onboard a BRT through a questionnaire survey which comprised of both revealed and stated preference nature. A sensitivity analysis performed for the accessibility measure revealed that time spent waiting for, and traveling in the feeder service impact the overall choice of mode.
