SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF SELECTED TRANSPORTATION CONTROL STRATEGIES

The relative potential of 13 different transportation control strategies for reducing projected regional vehicle kilometers of travel in the San Francisco Bay Area is analyzed. Through the use of a series of representative home-based work trips, it is possible to analyze mode-choice sensitivities directly by means of additional runs of the recently developed set of mode-split models for the region. These mode-split models are stratified by three automobile ownership categories for both primary and secondary workers. Ranges of potential mode-split shift for automobile, transit, and shared-ride modes are established for each transportation control strategy. Four combinations of strategies are examined. Graphs that help to depict relative mode shift potentials are developed by using stepwise increamental testing of various control measures. Mode-split sensitivities for representative trips are generalized to the regional level.
