With the increasing importance of consumer travel behavior in recent years, many researchers have begun to investigate various issues to gain a better understanding of consumer travel. In particular, research has tended from aggregate to individual analyses, and from a focus on economic or physical variables to cognitive or behavioral variables. One area of focus that appears to be neglected is the effect of situational factors on travel behavior. This paper presents a framework for identifying those situational factors that should be included, and provides an empirical test demonstrating how the addition of situational factors improves explanation of intercity commuter travel behavior.
