MODAL SPLIT MODELS BASED ON CAR AVAILABILITY: THE APPLICATION OF SUCH MODELS IN STUDIES OF MEDIUM SIZED TOWNS

The paper examines the difficulties of applying a modal split model based on car availability in transportation studies of medium sized towns. These urban populations are generally less than 100000 and represent areas where there are no serious deterrents to car use. These modelling difficulties are illustrated by analysing data from two transportation studies carried out in Kent. The awareness of the deficiencies described in the traditional car ownership modal split models has led to the adoption of car availability models. (TRRL)
