APPROACH TO PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTION OF VALUE OF WALKING TIME AND PEDESTRIAN CIRCULATION MODELS

A MULTIVARIATE ANALYTIC MODEL IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE PROBABILITY DENSITY DISTRIBUTION OF THE VALUE OF WALKING TIME. THE APPROACH ALLOWS FOR AN INCREMENTAL STUDY DESIGN, TREATING FIRST THE VALUE OF TIME AND THEN OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE CHOICE PROCEDURE, SUCH AS STREET GRADIENTS OR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY. IT IS INTENDED FOR USE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A PARKING SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE. THE ADVANTAGES OF THE MODEL ARE LOW DATA-COLLECTION COST, COVERAGE OF A WIDER RANGE OF CHOICE THAN BINARY-CHOICE MODELS, SIGNIFICANCE AT THE LEVEL OF THE INDIVIDUAL PEDESTRIAN DECISION-MAKER, AND AVOIDANCE OF COSTS THAT ARE ILL-DEFINED IN THE PEDESTRIAN'S MIND (E. G., CAR OPERATING COSTS). POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS ARE DESIGN OF PEDESTRIAN CIRCULATION SYSTEMS AND LOCATION OF PARKING FACILITIES.
