General multipath traffic assignment models are presented which are based on a simple model of tripmakers' perceptions and behavior rather than on a heuristic. These models can be calibrated through the study of tripmakers behavior on a limited set of trips rather than through the study of origin and destination patterns and link flows on a large network. The 3 models can be implemented by making minor changes in Dial's algorithm. One of the models, based on path likelihoods, contains Dial's model as a special case. The other 2 new models are based on arrival likelihoods and turn likelihoods.
