Study on Activity-Based Time Choice Model

The framework of an activity-based travel demand forecasting model is presented in this paper. By analyzing the factors which affect the residents’ travel time decisions, tow time choice models which can predict the start and end times of a trip respectively are developed. The models are estimated and the sensitivity of the model is analyzed from the 2003 Household Travel Survey in Changchun. With the designed models, the paper predicts how people adjust their start time when the travel cost by auto has been added. Finally the weaknesses of the current system are summarized, and the way to improve the approach of the time forecast is put forward.
