FORECASTING AUTO OWNERSHIP AND MODE CHOICE FOR U.S. METROPOLITAN AREAS. VOLUME II: MODEL EQUATIONS

Volume I of this report describes a multivariate model of auto ownership and mode choice, as well as its use in forecasting 1990 travel behavior, for a sample of 346,000 households and 407,000 workers in the largest 125 SMSAs. Household auto ownership decisions depend on family type and composition, household income, residential location, workplace location, highway and transit service levels, and measures of overall urban spatial structure for each SMSA. Given the number of cars owned and the variables used to explain auto ownership, each worker in the household selects one of five worktrip modes. This volume presents the coefficients of the detailed equations which comprise the models described in Volume I. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
