TRANSFERABILITY OF DISAGGREGATE MODE CHOICE MODELS

Predictions of aggregate transport mode split for inter-city trips are derived from a disaggregate model of travel demand. A series of tests are performed to assess the limitations of the prediction methodology for disaggregate models, and it is shown that disaggregate models are capable of predictions across diverse travel situations. The disaggregate model predictions are compared with predictions derived from aggregate models such as are currently used in urban transportation planning, and it is shown that disaggregate models based on much smaller data sets predict better than aggregate models while requiring no more information about the predicted population. This is one of several papers in this special issue on transportation modelling.
