This paper describes the mode-split model used by the Chicago Area Transportation Study, which was first used in mid-1973 for the evaluation of the 1995 regional transportation plan. It was concluded that the model possesses some highly desirable attributes such as: its compatibility with the conventional transportation process, its permission of application of disaggregate mode-choice models, and its provision of a detailed description of the access and egress transit service and a realistic account of its effect on transit ridership. The method for describing the service is flexible enough to support analyses of non-standard service, such as dial-a-ride. The model is fully operational and had been proven applicable for analyses of large-scale regional problems as well as for small-scale, subregional projects, including transportation system management strategies; and the resources required for data preparation and analysis are reasonable.
