A REVIEW OF CANADIAN URBAN PASSENGER MODE CHOICE MODELS

This paper reviews modal split models developed in seven Canadian cities during the last ten years, with the aim of reporting on model design, input data requirements, output and the impact of modal structure and assumptions on transit planning. To establish the functional and structural relationships between the mode choice model and the remaining three steps of the transportation planning process, brief descriptions of the trip generation, distribution and assignment steps are provided. In addition, wherever mode choice model description supplied by individual cities contains explicit modal split formulae, estimates of direct and cross point elasticities are derived.
