VALIDATION TEST OF DISAGGREGATE MODE CHOICE MODEL

A model of work trip mode choice was developed on a sample of workers taken before Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) opened for service. Validation tests of the model were performed on a sample of workers taken after BART service began. Two validation methods were used: the actual mode shares in the post-BART sample were compared to the mode shares predicted by the models estimated on the pre-BART sample, and the parameters of models estimated on the post-BART sample were compared with the parameters of the models estimated pre-BART. Three possible reasons were explored for the differences in actual and predicted shares and in the pre- and post-BART model parameters.
