A SIMULATION APPROACH TO TRANSPORTATION MODAL SPLIT ANALYSIS

The method and associated computer program developed by the authors computes the modal split by generating simulated travelers-each having a set of pertinent attributes randomly selected from appropriate distributions. The method assigns them to travel modes on the basis of a cost function that includes time, service frequency, and traveler preferences in addition to out-of-pocket cost.
