Applications Manual for Logit Modes of Express Bus-Fringe Parking Choices
Michael J. Demetsky
Year: 1976
VTRC No.: 77-R22
Abstract: Manual computations and computerized applications of logit models are described. The models demonstrated reflect travel behavior concerning express bus-fringe parking transit. The specific travel issues addressed include the basic automobile vs. express bus transit choice, model, transferability between two study areas, submodal split, and n-dimensional choice modeling. A series of curves derived from the mathematical models are presented in the appendices to simplify computations. A FORTRAN subroutine for using these models within the UTPS battery of computer programs for transportation planning is provided.
