Long-Term Analysis of Location Choice Behaviors Related to Transit Network and Household Attributes

A location choice behavior should be analyzed from a long-term view point. It will be carried out by the influences both of external factors, such as socio-economic changes or improvements of infrastructure facilities, and internal ones such as change of household attributes, for example, aging of children or change of the number of household member. Observed choice behaviors, however, differ by the order of timing of each factor occurrence and an actual location choice and how long the timing gap is has not been analyzed clearly. Also, the observed results of location choices are much different by the attributes of households. The current paper analyses the relations between location choice behaviors and each factor from a view point of time according to real data collected by three person trip surveys and an accompanied survey of location choice behaviors. It was found that three different groups such as "conventional residents", "new commuters", and "new residents" choice different commuter mode respectively and residents in different type of house move their houses at different timing after a factor occurrence which promotes their moving.
