TRAVEL-CHOICE BEHAVIOR: MODELS OF PERCEPTIONS, FEELINGS, PREFERENCE, AND CHOICE

This paper reports on research designed to develop practical methods to assist transportation planners to understand and respond to consumer needs and desires for local travel services. Models that describe the process by which consumers select means of travel based on proceptions, feelings, and preferences are presented and analyzed. These models are operationalized by using factor analysis and multinomial logit estimation. The resultant models describe consumer travel-choice behavior based on perceptions of and feelings towards transit modes and situational constraints. This strucure provides diagnostic information that transportation planners can use to modify local service to better serve travel needs and desires. (Author)
