Research is discussed which was designed to determine the size of the park and ride facility that should be constructed adjacent to the station of a new high speed mass transit, tracked air cushion vehicle (ATCV). It was found that binary modal-split procedures were inappropriate, as there were at least 3 competing modes: car, train, and TACV. Ten "channels" were considered, 4 of which were exclusively car- based, 4 of which involved the use of park and ride, and 3 were based upon bus and ride. A model of general formulation involving mode and route split was considered. Details are given of the Markovian process. The computations require information on the transition probabilities which are a result of the subjective estimation by individuals of the attributes of the different alternatives.
