Modeling Participation and Consumption in the Greek Interurban Public Transportation Market

This paper investigates the Greek household travel demand for domestic interurban public transportation using cross-sectional micro-data from a countrywide Household Budget Survey. A number of limited dependent variable models, including the Heckit, 2-Part, and Double-Hurdle models, are implemented to jointly estimate the probability of selecting a specific mode and the amount of using it. The results provide useful insight into the existence of feedback relationships between the decisionmaking mechanisms of mode selection and amount of usage, and they demonstrate the predominant effect of income on the demand for coaches, railways, airplanes, and coast-wise sea ferries.
