This paper investigates commuters' decision to delay their departure from work to home, in an effort to avoid traffic congestion. A sample of commuters, from the congested Seattle metropolitan area, is used to estimate a model of the decision to delay homeward departure as well as models of the...
This paper presents an empirical analysis of the statistical bias resulting from the endogeniety of vehicle specific attributes in econometric models of household vehicle utilization. Using data from a recent U.S. household survey, both corrected and uncorrected vehicle utilization models are...
We identify seven areas in which recent research on auto demand has made significant progress. We discuss the importance of these areas in understanding and predicting auto demand and describe the methods that researchers have used to address them. Finally, we identify the issues that this...
This paper investigates the determinants of commuter flexibility in changing routes and departure times for the morning trip to work. A sample of commuters in a congested metropolitan area is used to estimate Poisson regressions of how often commuters change routes and departure times per month....
This paper presents a statistical analysis of commuters' route choice behavior and the influence of traffic information. The analysis is based on a 1992 computer-aided telephone interview survey of Los Angeles area morning commuters. The results underscore the important relationship between the...
This paper studies public transport demand by estimating a system of equations for multimodal transit systems where different modes may act competitively or cooperatively. Using data from Athens, Greece, we explicitly correct for higher-order serial correlation in the error terms and investigate...
Airport security screening, and the amount of time it costs travelers, has been a persistent concern to travelers, airport authorities, and airlines – particularly in recent years where changes in perceived threats have resulted in changes in security procedures that have caused great...
