Mode Choice of Complex Tours

Mode Choice of Complex Tours

On the basis of the six-week diary Mobidrive this paper studies mode choice at the level of the tour, i.e. the trips are amalgamated into a journey. In 86.1% of the case these tours involve only one mode. This justifies the focus on the main mode of a tour. The survey is discussed and a detailed descriptive analysis of the tours and the activity patterns provided. The choice modelling involves both simple multi-nomial logits models as well as mixed logits accounting for within-group error correlations. The models are specified very richly, including in particular a detailed characterisation of the choice situation, but also of the long-term commitments of the persons and households.
