This paper discusses the methodological and practical issues associated with the development of a system of intercity travel demand models, based on analysis of individual travel choices and using a behaviourally based disaggregate modelling approach. This approach can represent more accurately the decision making process of the behavioural unit, which is the individual and associated household. The paper examines: (1) the modelling approach (aggregate versus disaggregate); (2) the behavioural framework and theoretical basis of the model system; (3) intercity travel data needs; (4) data structure; (5) the model structure; (6) the use of existing data to estimate and evaluate the proposed approach. The authors conclude that: (1) their model estimation results support the conceptual structure and the corresponding model structure that they describe; (2) the conceptual structure and the derived models reasonably represent intercity travel demand relationships in the USA; (3) there are several deficiencies in the estimation results, which can be attributed to the characteristics of the data set used in the study; (4) collection of data specifically to estimate a system of disaggregate intercity travel models is likely to provide a basis for developing a behaviourally consistent model system with high predictive accuracy.
