THE USE OF DISAGGREGATE MODELS IN TRAVEL DEMAND ANALYSIS

The term disaggregate model is one which has been appearing with increasing regularity in literature concerned with the analysis and prediction of travel demand. Yet it is a term which very few of those concerned with either the day-to-day application of transportation models or the day-to-day development of transportation plans and policies fully understand. The application of disaggregate modelling techniques to travel demand has been developed primarily by academics and as yet it remains largely the preserve of researches. However, the potential offered by disaggregate models for improving not only travel demand modelling but also the basic understanding of travel behaviour is considerable. The purpose of this paper is to endeavour to present in relatively simple terms the basic reasoning behind the development of disaggregate models, the typical structure of such models, possible applications and some of the problems associated with their use. /Author/ /TRRL/
