Both in planning roads and traffic installations and in controlling traffic, it is essential to know the distribution of traffic over different modes. Over the past 10 years, logit models have been found to have properties which make them very well suited for traffic planning. They have better statistical precision than conventional choice of mode models, and the explanatory factors are also the instruments at the planning authority's disposal. Logit models can be used for: 1. Traditional forecasting, 2. Analyses of the effect of traffic policy changes, 3. Comparisons of standards, 4. National economic cost-benefit analyses. The results of analyses in greater stockholm show that increased service frequency, direct connections without the need to change, and maximum comfort are the measures most urgently needed to increase travel on public transport. Very good agreement is found between forecasts with logit models and actual data. /TRRL/
