SOME COMMENTS ON IDENTIFICATION OF MAGNITUDE OF TRAVEL COST AND TRAVEL TIME

The objective of this article is to attempt a rational interpretation of the argument: "Do "perceptual" measurement processes approximate the 'actual' situation facing a mode user better than the 'manufactured' measurement process?" The ability to explain and predict modal choice tends to depend very heavily on the reliability of estimates made of the costs and times associated with the chosen and alternative modes for a particular journey. This study concentrates on the travel costs variable, with limited discussion of travel time. /TRRL/
