TOWARDS MODAL CHOICE DECISION-MAKING MODELS: A CASE STUDY OF LAGOS STATE TRANSPORT CORPORATION BUS RIDERS

Identification of the socioeconmic factors which affect the demand for buses, and the analysis of the use of the other transport modes by bus users are the two main objectives of this article. This identifies mode of transport, distance, travel time, reliability, and the number of stops as significant mode choice variables. These findings support the two alternative hypotheses of the study that the choice of bus is related to the individual perception of the quality of service of the different modes and that socioeconomic characteristics of the riders influence the patronage of buses.
