LOGIT ANALYSIS OF RAPID TRANSIT ACCESS CHOICES

The study examines the suitability of applying the program ULOGIT of the UTPS Package of Urban Transportation Planning Programs to forecast rapid transit access mode choices. Strategies and issues associated with logit modeling of submodal choices are examined and a specific modeling approach for this study is selected. The travel data are interpreted to develop descriptive aggregate measures of access mode supply characteristics so that only feasible access mode choices are used in developing the models. Also, rapid transit stations and access points are classified into groups to test hypotheses regarding the specification of service needs for station location types. Results show that models for classified station groups have coefficients that differ from each other, and from a model calibrated with data for all stations in a group.
