A modal split model developed by the national physical planning agency for a study of the relations between the physical structure of towns and the transport system is described. The model divides a given total origin-destination matrix into trips by mode: car, public transport, motorcycle, bicycle. The basic idea of the model is that every traveller makes his choice from the various modes in a given choice situation. This situation is defined by the trip purpose and the modes available to the trip maker. The choice from these modes is determined by the travel times, costs and distances and in some cases by the parking situation at the place of destination. On the one hand, these variables constitute the choice determining factors, on the other hand they are policy related. The basic idea is worked out into an operational model concept. The calibration of the model is described. The appendices deal with the theoretical and operational model put into a scheme, the formulae of the modal split model, the parameter values used in the model and the results obtained. The covering abstract for the conference is IRRD no. 213390. /TRRL/
