PUTTING BEHAVIOUR INTO BEHAVIOURAL MODELS OF TRAVEL CHOICE

The article argues that disaggregate behavioural travel models are not, as their authors claim, behaviourally sound and policy relevant but just caricature behaviour and produce predictions in conflict with evidence. The article presents a description of household travel behaviour and suggests three ways in which it could be realistically modelled using models which are either pragmatic, mathematical or interactive. The author concludes that models of behaviour may have to become more human and less mathematical if they are to offer realistic representation of an individual's activities. /TRRL/
