FACTORS AFFECTING CHOICE OF TRAVEL MODE

Society is contemporarily demanding intensified study of both private and public travel modes. Transport planners are being questioned on the validity of large expenditure on limited access roadways. They are also being asked the social consequences of substantial investment in urban public transport. To make an objective assessment of the public-private transport issue, a sound understanding of the mode choice decision-making process is necessary. Unfortunately, most of the current literature on mode choice is directed towards extolling the virtues of one particular type of model. This paper presents a wider approach and attempts to give an understanding of the mode choice decision-making process and to define a base for the sound evaluation of mode choice models. (A) /TRRL/
