A MARKETING APPROACH TO CARPOOL DEMAND ANALYSIS. TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM III. TRADEOFF MODEL AND POLICY SIMULATION

The memorandum discusses the theoretical basis of the trade-off model and its adaptation particularly in the simulation procedures used in evaluating specific policies. Two published articles dealing with the development and application of the trade-off model for market research are included as appendices to this memorandum. This model was the primary instrument used in connection with a research effort examining the role of individuals attitudes and perceptions in deciding whether or not to carpool. The research was based upon a survey of commuters in 3 major urban areas and has resulted in a sizeable new data base on respondents' socioeconomic and worktrip characteristics, travel perceptions and travel preferences. An overview of the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the research is contained in the Summary Report, also available through NTIS.
