ATTITUDES TO CAR SHARING. THE CALIBRATION SURVEYS FOR A MICROSIMULATION MODEL

SAMORDNING AV ARBETSRESOR. RESVANEUNDERSOEKNING I SUNDSVALL, AUGUSTI 1977

This paper is one of a series describing the methods and findings of a TRRL sponsored project to investigate and to simulate organised car sharing schemes. This volume describes the various surveys carried out in the course of the project and reports findings. The primary role of the surveys in the project was to provide data with which to calibrate simulation models; to this end the respondents were integrated into the simulation exercise in a quite unique manner. The main survey of 10000 households sought attitudes and responses to a proposed car sharing scheme. It was designed to clarify and quantify the various factors influencing an individual's decision to apply to join a car sharing scheme. A subsequent survey invited respondents to indicate their reaction, in terms of monetary units, to A series of proposed matches. This survey enabled us to create a utility function for use in simulating the success or failure of proposed car sharing arrangements. A separate survey sought information on the current car-sharing behaviour of our respondents but it must be stressed that this was incidental to our main surveys. This paper records the methodologies and results of these surveys and includes a retrospective critique.(a) (TRRL)
