CAR AVAILABILITY AND USAGE: A MODAL SPLIT MODEL BASED ON THESE CONCEPTS

This paper examines the influence of one variable, namely car availability, on modal split modelling. After a general introduction on the background to modal split and some of the problems with the existing approaches, a microlevel examination is made of the patterns of car usage during the day and during the week, disaggregated by purpose and household type. From this, the choice situation based on car availability is hypothesised and modelled by a category analysis approach. Certain policy measures are then input into the model, and the changes in terms of modal split assessed. Finally the importance of car availability in modal split modelling is summarised. /Author/TRRL/
