ATTITUDINAL MODELS OF MODAL CHOICE: THE MULTINOMIAL CASE FOR SELECTED NONWORK TRIPS

Attitudinal multinomial logit models of modal choice are presented for four nonwork activities: major grocery shopping, shopping for odds and ends, shopping for personal goods and visiting friends and acquaintances. Explanatory variables are individuals' beliefs about attributes of four modal alternatives: bus, car, taxi and walking. Factor analysis is employed to identify latent dimensions of perception of the modal alternatives and to eliminate problems of multicollinearities in model estimation. Models are estimated using data obtained for sample of residents of Buffalo, New York. Planning implications of the methodology are assessed. /Author/
