FACTORS AFFECTING THE MILITARY COMMUTER'S CHOICE OF TRAVEL MODE.
A research questionnaire was given to residents of Wright-Patterson AFB military housing who had access to a free military bus line usable for work commuting. Results indicated significant differences with respect to the number of automobiles in the family, working status of spouse, walking time from parking place to place of work, and total trip time by automobile. It was hypothesized that military users and non-users would rank service first, comfort second, and free fare last in their decision to use or not use the base bus for work commuting. Testing validated this order for non-users but indicated a different order for users--service and free fare evenly divided, then comfort.
