APPLICATION OF A UNIVARIATE LOGIT MODEL TO PEDESTRIAN/TRANSIT MODE CHOICE BAHAVIOR: A SURVEY OF CAMPUS TRAVEL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA

The principal purpose of this research is to evaluate the predictive power and utility of a stochastic, disaggregate pedestrian/transit mode choice model for campus planning and transit operations. A specific objective is to determine if a relatively simple survey procedure of collecting campus travel data from a small sample can be used to successfully fit a univariate logit mode choice model of pedestrian/CAMBUS travel at the university of Iowa. The first section of this paper provides a brief review of the application of stochastic, disaggregate analysis techniques to the mode choice problem in transportation research, and the use of logit model in special context planning in particular. The second part of this paper provides a description of the University of Iowa campus physical environment and transportation system attributes. This section of the paper also outlines the procedures and results of the April, 1975 survey of campus travel conducted at the Univesity of Iowa. In the third section of the paper, the application of the results of logit analysis of this data set is reported. in the last section of this paper, the potential utility of the logit model formulated and fitted for pedestrian/COMBUS travel is discussed, and a method of evaluating its predictive power is illustrated. /Author/
