DESTINATION CHOICE MODELLING AND THE DISAGGREGATE ANALYSIS OF URBAN TRAVEL BEHAVIOR

This report presents a detailed analysis of suggested methods of disaggregate analysis for trip generation. Topics discussed include destination choice uncomplicated by mode choice, development of a model taking aggregation into consideration, and the use of attitudinal data. The disaggregate modelling approach is described, with references to recent research work. The results of the empirical analysis of this research are also presented. Estimations and predictions based on functional destination choice modelling are discussed. A summary recommends that a systematic definition of travel choice sets be adopted, that a multinomial response approach to developing an aggregation scheme in conjunction with a sample survey be used, and that disaggregate analysis be considered in the separate sampling of travel market segments.
