A Public Transport Route Choice Model with Multimodal Access and Egress: Application to the Large-Scale Network of Singapore

Travelling in multimodal public transport does not only involve transfers between different public transport modes and services, but also access and egress to/from the public transport network. This study expands existing literature by considering the multimodality of public transport trips, not only among different public transport services, but also among different access/egress modes. This study also deviates from existing literature by generating choice sets with 100% coverage on all reasonable paths in a large and complex multimodal public transport network. A stratified choice-based sampling and conditional maximum likelihood estimation of Path Size Logit model is adopted to tackle the complexity and challenges of the multimodal public transport route choices in Singapore, where walk dominates other access/egress modes. Data from household travel surveys including 1265 individual trips is used for model estimation. Results illustrate individuals’ preferences over different factors such as: (i) types of transfers, (ii) access/egress modes, (iii) fare, and (iv) travel time components (invehicle, waiting, transferring, and access and egress time via multiple travel modes).
