A COMPARISON OF ALTERNATIVE SURVEY APPROACHES FOR MODE CHOICE MODEL ESTIMATION

The Georgia Department of Transportation funded a major effort to evaluate commuter rail alternatives for the greater Atlanta region, including 50 counties in north Georgia. A travel demand forecasting model system was developed to estimate potential commuter rail ridership for each of 17 corridors into Atlanta. In addition, a model to describe commuters' choices among existing and future commuter rail model alternatives was to be developed for the model system. This paper, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, describes the Atlanta Commuter Rail Project and the mode choice modeling issues particular to the study. Types of surveys and use of data from different sources are described.
