DETERMINATION OF ACCESS TIMES TO RAIL RAPID TRANSIT STATIONS WITHIN THE CITY OF CHICAGO

This paper addresses the question of access mode and travel time to rapid transit stations within the City of Chicago. An analysis of an existing disaggregate data set was undertaken to determine: (1) the distance from a rapid station at which people walk, as opposed to ride the bus, to the station; and (2) the travel time in both unfactored and equivalent time (with unequal weightings of trip components) by the bus for people traveling a given distance. An indifference distance of one-half mile was determined, and models which express travel time, in both unfactored and equivalent time, as a function of distance developed.
