DESIGN OF PROCEDURES TO EVALUATE TRAVELER RESPONSES TO CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM SUPPLY. CONFERENCE SUMMARY AND WHITE PAPERS

The problem addressed arises from the need to develop better techniques for forecasting travel demand. The analysis of transportation system changes through a before change-after impact survey is seen as a means of better understanding the influences on travel behavior and the decisions leading to that behavior. The conference from which these proceedings resulted was held to present and discuss ideas relevant to alternative study designs and data collection methodologies for before change-after impact situations. The papers present different aspects of the central theme. They include long-term, net benefit changes studied by direct demand analysis; types of system changes; attitudinal procedures for short-term, net cost situations; specific change hypotheses and the data requirements involved; and criteria for distinguishing between short-term and long-term supply changes, as well as the criteria for study design of change type.
