For analysis of many transportation-related policies, it is useful to know the change which a particular policy would induce in the number of autos owned by households and the number of workers who take transit and auto to work. Models of households' choices of now many autos to own (auto ownership choice) and workers' choice of mode (work-trip mode choice) are intended to provide information can be used, along with other information and ideas, in deciding which policies should be implemented. Previous research in this area has been generally deficient. This study confronts the deficiencies, and models of ownership and work-trip mode choices are developed and estimated with explicit account taken of the interaction between the choices. Numerous explanatory variables are included so that a variety of policies and scenarios can be examined with the models. Throughout the study, the unit of analysis is the individual household and worker, and, consequently, the models are called disaggregate.
