CHOICE AND CAPTIVE MODAL-SPLIT MODELS

AN INVESTIGATION WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE DESIRABILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING 2 SETS OF MODAL- SPLIT MODELS-DIRECT GENERATION FOR CAPTIVE TRANSIT RIDERS AND TRIP INTERCHANGE FOR CHOICE TRANSIT RIDERS. THE DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DUAL TRANSIT TRIP-MAKING POPULATION ARE DEFINED BY A SET OF HYPOTHETICAL DEMAND CURVES OF TRANSIT SERVICES FOR BOTH CAPTIVE AND CHOICE RIDERS. WHEREAS CAPTIVE RIDERS ARE INELASTIC WITH CHANGES IN THE RELATIVE ATTRACTIVENESS OF THE TRANSIT AND HIGHWAY SYSTEMS, CHOICE RIDERS ARE SENSITIVE TO CHANGES IN EITHER HIGHWAY OR TRANSIT FACILITIES. INFORMATION GATHERED FOR THE MIAMI, FLORIDA, URBAN AREA WAS USED TO IDENTIFY AND QUANTIFY THOSE FACTORS AFFECTING USE. THE TWO MODELS WERE FOUND TO BE STATISTICALLY VALID AND ACCURATELY SIMULATED TRAVEL CHANGE. /AUTHOR/
