SEPARABLE VERSUS SIMULTANEOUS TRAVEL-CHOICE BEHAVIOR

After an initial discussion of the implications for travel modeling of alternative travel-choice behavior assumptions, 2 of these assumptions are discussed and analyzed in detail. The assumptions are separable and sequential travel choice versus simultaneous travel choice. Subsumed within this separable-simultaneous dichotomy are long-run activity location decisions and short-run travel decisions. Alternative methods of applying travel models based on the various assumptions are presented, and their strong and weak points are discussed.
