The paper describes a modal split model based on distribution costs for each mode, and a correlation between these distributions. For more than two transport modes the computation of modal split using the model becomes complex. A modification of the "Wilson" model is used giving results close to those of the cost distribution model. The analysis assumes that all modes are equally available and that all travellers have the same value of time on the main mode. /TRRL/
