INCORPORATING OBSERVED AND UNOBSERVED HETEROGENEITY IN URBAN WORK TRAVEL MODE CHOICE MODELING

A person's intrinsic mode preference and responsiveness to level-of-service variables affects his or her travel mode choice for a trip. Mode preference and responsiveness will, in general, vary across individuals based on observed and unobserved (to an analyst) characteristics. This paper formulates a multinomial logit-based model of travel mode choice that accommodates variations in mode preference and responsiveness to level-of-service due to both observed and unobserved individual characteristics. The model parameters are estimated using a maximum simulated log-likelihood approach. The model is applied to examine urban work travel mode choice in a multi-day sample of workers from the San Francisco Bay area.
