This paper focused upon spatial transferability of disaggregate mode choice models. Many works associated with this topic have been carried out in recent years, but few researches discussed practical techniques of transferring the models; comparison of possible approaches for transferring, identification of evaluation indices and sample size to update the model. The purpose of this paper is to examine the above issues. Disaggregate mode choice models for non-grocery shopping trips are estimated in three different areas; Tokyo, Kanagawa and Gunma. The results indicate that (1) Kanagawa models are transferable to Tokyo data, that (2) transferring method to re-estimate constant terms with disaggregate data is most effective, and that (3) sufficient size of samples to re-estimate is 250 or more.
