STUDY OF AGGREGATE BI-MODAL URBAN TRAVEL SUPPLY, DEMAND AND NETWORK BEHAVIOR USING SIMULTANEOUS EQUATIONS WITH AUTOREGRESSIVE RESIDUALS

This paper emphasizes the existence of a difference among demand functions, which describe how consumers react, supply functions, which analyze the behavior of suppliers, and cost functions, which specify how prices and levels of service on a link or in a network vary with vehicle flows, ridership flows and other factors such as technology. Four aggregate demand, supply and cost models are formulated: each one regroups a subset of demand, supply and cost functions for two modes in Montreal, Quebec. A significant part of the analysis pertains to the study of a regulated transit supplier. The parameters of all models are estimated by at least two of four limited-information and full-information estimation techniques.
