THREE FAMILIES OF MODE CHOICE MODELS APPLICABLE TO INTERCITY TRAVEL DEMAND WITH AGGREGATE DATA

This paper describes the reasons why the linear logit model, a favorite tool for transportation choice modeling and other uses, is not generally acceptable for most applications if its functional form has not been demonstrated to be robust. The paper demonstrates the credibility of the model's theoretical properties and compares its results with those obtained by relatively simple generalizations that all include the model as a nested special case. In particular, the paper finds evidence of both modal captivity and asymmetric response that would make a difference to the evaluation of significant service improvements.
