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...
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 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....
The level of service (LOS) concept in the Highway Capacity Manual has been used as a qualitative measure representing freeway operational conditions for over 35 years. One key element that has not been adequately addressed is how road users perceive LOS. This exploratory research examines...
One of the key aspects of graduated driver licensing programs is the new-driver experience gained in the presence of a guardian (a person providing mandatory supervision from the passenger seat). However, the effect that this guardian-supervising practice has on adolescent drivers’...
<title/> The dynamic characteristics of automobile demand are critical for national economic and revenue predictions. Automobile demand and ownership level forecasts are also the basis for travel demand models, land-use-transport interaction models, and transport policies and regulations. In this...
