BEHAVIORAL MODELS IN TRANSPORTATION: PERSPECTIVES, PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS
This paper assesses the history and potential of behavioral models in transportation, as developed in the U.S. since the late 1960's. Three general structures (disaggregate models, attitudinal models, and household based structures) are described and critiqued. Implementation problems with the first two are attributed primarily to overstatements of their capabilities, institutional reluctance, and shifting emphasis of transportation planning: stronger federal level support, convincing demonstrations, and training are now necessary to progress further. Household structures appear to hold promise but are too recent a development to assess fairly. /Author/
