SCALING PERCEPTIONS OF RELIABILITY OF URBAN TRAVEL MODES USING INDSCAL AND FACTOR ANALYSIS METHODS

In several attitudinal investigations, travel modes' reliability was found to be the most important characteristic of the transportation system. This research is concerned with the individual subjective evaluation of different reliability attributes. Two scaling techniques - indscal and factor analysis - were used to investigate travel modes' reliability; these techniques aided in the identification of perceptual performance measures of reliability. The scaling techniques were also evaluated and compared for their usefulness and the reliability performance measures were validated using a preference model. (Author/TRRL)
