MODAL-CHOICE AND ATTITUDE PATTERNS FOR A MEDIUM-SIZED METROPOLITIAN AREA

THE PURPOSES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO EVALUATE THE FACTORS THAT JOINTLY INFLUENCE THE USE OF A PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUES OF ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION THAT WILL ASSIST THE PLANNING OF FUTURE TRANSIT NEEDS. A SAMPLED POPULATION OF EMPLOYEES OF DOWNTOWN FIRMS IN DENVER WAS ASKED TO COMPLETE A QUESTIONNAIRE. THE FACTORS THAT MAY REASONABLY HAVE IMPORTANT INFLUENCE ON MODAL CHOICE WERE ANALYZED. STATISTICAL FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS WERE FITTED TO SURVEY DATA FOR SEVERAL FACTORS. CORRELATIONS AMONG A NUMBER OF VARIABLES WERE DETERMINED. THE RELATION BETWEEN CERTAIN INTERVALS OF A VARIABLE (CALLED THE CONDITIONING VARIABLE) AND DATA LEVELS FOR OTHER VARIABLES THAT WOULD JOINTLY HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE CHOICE OF MODE WERE USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MODAL-CHOICE PREDICTION MODELS.
