Park & Ride User Path Problem: Findings from On-Board Surveys

This paper presents findings on the behavior of park-and-ride users that were obtained from commuter rail on-board surveys in the Greater Montreal Area (Canada). The datasets are used to estimate a disutility function for the Park-and-Ride User Path Problem (PRUPP). Results show that access to the train station, by car, is the more important parameter in deciding the park-and-ride path; actually, nearest train station predicts more than 50% of the observed path. Other significant parameters are travel time (in the train), walk time at the parking lot and transit fare (monthly pass).
