TRAVEL DEMAND. MODELS AND CALCULATION METHODS BASED ON ELASTICITIES

RESEFTERFRAAGAN. MODELLER OCH BERAEKNINGSMETODER BASERADE PAA ELASTICITETSTAL

There are basically two methods of analyzing how different factors affect travelling by public transport: (1) elasticity values, which means the value that specifies the sensitivity of travel demand to changes in a factor, (2) demand functions, which means total connections between the demand for journeys and the different factors that affect the demand. The second method is more used because of its simplicity. In this report the available knowledge of elasticities for public transport in built-up areas is summarized. The report partly deals with elasticities for changes in the fare level and partly with elasticities for changes in the offer (the service level). There is also a survey of the results that have been obtained in different foreign investigations. (TRRL)
