COMPARISON OF INTER-CITY BI-MODAL SPLIT MODELS

Using data collected from rail and air passengers on two inter-city routes in the UK, seven different model formulations were set up and tested in order to ascertain the most appropriate model format. As a result of the work carried out, it is concluded that a simple entropy-type model based on the theoretical work of A.G. Wilson and utilising a linear generalised cost function is the most suitable. Other useful parameters emerging from the work are perceived values of travel time, and a weighting factor for night travel.
