TravInfo Evaluation: Traveler Response Element Broad Area Study: Phase 2 Results Analysis of Wave-2 Survey

TravInfo, a field operational test, aimed to develop a multi-modal traveler information system for the San Francisco Bay Area with input from the public and private sectors. The Broad Area Study addressed issues on how travelers obtain traffic/transit information and how the information influences travel behavior. Two telephone surveys established a baseline traveler behavior of Bay Area households based on traveler information and assessed the impact of traveler information on the entire Bay Area traveling population. The surveys showed that there was little change in the way people obtain traveler information, but more people modified their travel behavior in 1998 than did in 1995. As shown in the 1995 survey, most people changed departure time or took an alternate route. Mode shift was fairly negligible in both surveys.
