Modeling vehicle usage, mode choice and trip chaining for multiple household members in developing countries

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Dilum Dissanayake



This study attempts to investigate household decisions on vehicle usage, mode choice and trip chaining in developing countries using a multi-level nested logit (NL) model. The nesting structure represents the choices of vehicle usage, vehicle selection and mode selection for two-traveler households. Household serving chain is entered as one of the mode-choice options in the developed NL model and attributes relating to the household travel are explicitly incorporated in the analysis. A congestion reduction policy considering a “push and pull” concept is also conducted using the estimated NL model. The model and the policies are verified using the data from Bangkok Metropolitan Region.
