MODAL SPLIT CONSIDERATION ON LONG DISTANCE PASSENGER TRAFFIC: EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT RELATIVE INCREASE IN TRANSPORTATION COSTS, COVERED BY HIGHER ENERGY PRICES

The purpose of this paper is to develop a model explaining the relative distribution of long distance passenger traffic mainly on railway and air transport. Further it is shown how increased prices of energy influence the relative distribution. Data from Norway are used to estimate coefficients in a model based on the logistic curve. Increase in energy prices are shown for railways, air and passenger cars. Theoretical calculations indicate in a certain case a 40 per cent increase in railway traffic due to increased fares, whereas traffic counts show 36 per cent. /Author/TRRL/
