AN ATTITUDINAL TRAVEL DEMAND MODEL FOR NON-WORK TRIPS OF HOMOGENOUSLY CONSTRAINED SEGMENTS OF A POPULATION

Market segmentation techniques are used to capture effects of opportunity and availability constraints on urban residents' choice of mode for trips for major grocery shopping and for visiting friends and acquaintances. Attitudinal multinomial logit choice models are estimated for each market segment. Explanatory variables are individual's beliefs about attributes of four modal alternatives: bus, car, taxi and walking. Factor analysis is employed to identfy latent dimensions of perception of the modal alternatives and to eliminate problems of multicollinearity in model estimation. /Author/
