CHOICE OF MODE FOR INTERURBAN FREIGHT TRANSPORT

LE CHOIX DU MODE POUR LES TRANSPORTS INTERURBAINS DE MARCHANDISES

THE AUTHORS STUDY THE CHOICE OF INTERURBAN TRANSPORT MODE AS A FUNCTION OF TRANSPORT COSTS. THESE ARE CALCULATED FROM AN INDUSTRIAL AREA OF TOWN A TO THAT OF TOWN B. TRANSPORT TIMES AFFECTING THE MODE CHOICE ARE SIMILARLY CALCULATED. THE LEVEL OF SERVICE FUNCTION OFFERED IS SUBJECT TO NUMEROUS FACTORS: FREQUENCY, CAPACITY, REGULARITY, SECURITY, ACCIDENT ETC. THE MODAL CHOICE MODEL IS DEFINED BY A SYSTEM OF EQUATIONS WHICH CALCULATES THE PERCENTAGE OF GENERAL TRAFFIC FOR EACH MODE. THIS MODEL IS UTILISED IN THE CALCULATION OF DEMAND IN FIVE PHASES: GENERATION, ATTRACTION, DISTRIBUTION, MODAL CHOICE AND SIMULATION.
