BEHAVIORAL MODAL SPLIT
The purpose of the authors, in the above methodological study, is to construct a model enabling a forecast to be made of the choice between the different forms of transport made by passengers, based on a certain number of data relating to the passenger himself and the form of transport. For this purpose, they make use of a theory known as the Lancaster theory, which considers the disutility of travel by a form of transport to be a function of certain attributes of the journey made (time and cost, for example). They carry out a critical examination of two models constructed on this basis, showing brief details of the questionaires covering the surveys undertaken for test purposes, in order finally to propose a third, more elaborate, model, which is said to have provided forecasts of which 90% have proved to be accurate, and which could be used to establish the improvements to be made to public transport.
